Anisotropy analysis of spatial point patternsMI HS 3 (Boltzmannstr. 3, 85748 Garching)

This talk will give an overview of techniques for detecting anisotropy in spatial point patterns. As an example of application, we will analyse the pore system in polar ice. In a depth below approx. 100 m, the ice contains isolated air bubbles which can be studied by using tomographic images of ice core samples. Interpreting the system of bubble centres as a realisation of a regular point process subject to geometric anisotropy, preferred directions and strength of compression can be estimated.
