The colloquium at the Department of Mathematics takes place in a loose sequence, with two lectures each:
from 14:30 - 15:30 and 16:00 - 17:00 in lecture hall 3 (MI 00.06.011).
During the break we offer you drinks and pretzels in the Magistrale.

Anisotropy analysis of spatial point patterns
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.
Time: 16:00 - 17:00
