  • Subject: Point process, hotspot, prediction, space-time, crime

Many physical and sociological processes are represented as discrete events in time and space. These spatio-temporal point processes are often sparse, meaning that they cannot be aggregated and treated with conventional regression models. Models based on the point proce... View more
