# InhomogeneousPoissonPointProcess

represents an inhomogeneous Poisson point process with density function in .

# Details  • InhomogeneousPoissonPointProcess is also known as a nonstationary Poisson point process or an independent scattering point process.
• Typical uses include modeling varying density that depends only on the location , such as varying growth conditions.
• InhomogeneousPoissonPointProcess generates points in a region according to the specified density function μ with no point interactions.
• With density function μ, the point count in an observation region is distributed as PoissonDistribution with mean .
• • Density function μ can be given as:
•  func a function of vectors geofunc a function of geo locations PointDensityFunction density function from point collections
• The number of points in disjoint regions for a Poisson point process are independent , where are non-negative integers.
• A point configuration with density function μ in an observation region with volume has density function with respect to PoissonPointProcess[1,d].
• The Papangelou conditional density for adding a point to a point configuration is for an inhomogeneous Poisson point process with density function μ.
• The density function can be any positive integrable function in and d can be any positive integer.
• InhomogeneousPoissonPointProcess can be used with such functions as RipleyK and RandomPointConfiguration.
