Upper bounds for spatial point process approximations


Schuhmacher, D (2005). Upper bounds for spatial point process approximations. Annals of Applied Probability, 15(1B):615-651.

Abstract

We consider the behavior of spatial point processes when subjected to a class of linear transformations indexed by a variable T. It was shown in Ellis [Adv. in Appl. Probab. 18 (1986) 646–659] that, under mild assumptions, the transformed processes behave approximately like Poisson processes for large T. In this article, under very similar assumptions, explicit upper bounds are given for the d2-distance between the corresponding point process distributions. A number of related results, and applications to kernel density estimation and long range dependence testing are also presented. The main results are proved by applying a generalized Stein–Chen method to discretized versions of the point processes.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
