Invitation to PhD defense by Kristian Bjørn Hessellund.
Title: Semi-parametric models for multivariate point pattern data.


The objective of this thesis is to develop methodology to analyze first and second order properties of multivariate point pattern data with complex intensity functions.

The developed methodology is applicable for various types of multivariate point pattern data. However, the methodology is demonstrated to be particularly well-suited for street crime data and cancer cell data, since such data sets can be recognized as realizations of multivariate point processes with complex intensity functions.
