Abstract

In many branches of science there is interest in the study and description of data which represent the locations of objects as points in an essentially planar region. In the present paper we assume that the objects are of two qualitatively distinguishable types and refer to the data as a bivariate spatial point pattern. A statistical analysis of such data should seek to provide some meaningful summary descriptions of the separate point patterns for each of the two types of objects, and of any possible inter-relationship between these two patterns. It is also considered a variable, an object characteristic, attached to each individual of bo
