A seminar by Senior Lecturer Tilman Davies from University of Otago
Title: Smoothing, Space and Statistics
Abstract: Statistical tools for the analysis of spatial data have often been developed as either special cases or generalisations of non-spatial analogues, such as multivariate density estimation or time series models. In this seminar, I discuss my own path to becoming an applied spatial statistician, and cover recent developments in two key areas of my research -- spatially adaptive kernel smoothing with a view to estimation of point process intensity; and spatial autoregressions with a view to modelling physiological trends in mammalian muscle fibres.
