The first statistics book devoted to spatio-temporal models, Statistical Methods for Spatio-Temporal Systems presents current statistical research issues on spatio-temporal data modeling that will promote advances in research and a greater understanding between the mechanistic and the statistical modeling communities. The book describes recent advances and presents a variety of statistical methods, including likelihood-based, nonparametric smoothing, spectral, Fourier, wavelet, and Markov chain Monte Carlo. The methods are illustrated with color images as well as real-world examples, case studies, and applications from epidemiology, geology, and climatology. Key topics include point processes, dynamics, modeling, data analysis, Bayesian methods, and geostatistics.
