Point processes and random measures find wide applicability in telecommunications, earthquakes, image analysis, spatial point patterns, and stereology, to name but a few areas. The authors have made a major reshaping of their work in their first edition of 1988 and now present their Introduction to the Theory of Point Processes in two volumes with sub-titles Elementary Theory and Models and General Theory and Structure. Volume One contains the introductory chapters from the first edition, together with an informal treatment of some of the later material intended to make it more accessible to readers primarily interested in models and applications. The main new material in this volume relates to marked point processes and to processes evolving in time, where the conditional intensity methodology provides a basis for model building, inference, and prediction. There are abundant examples whose purpose is both didactic and to illustrate further applications of the ideas and models that are the main substance of the text.
Early History.- Basic Properties of the Poisson Process.- Simple Results for Stationary Point Processes on the Line.- Renewal Processes.- Finite Point Processes.- Models Constructed via Conditioning: Cox, Cluster, and Marked Point Processes.- Conditional Intensities and Likelihoods.- Second Order Properties of Stationary Point Processes.
