Bayesian inference for a random tessellation process.

Author information

Department of Probability and Statistics, University of Sheffield, UK.


This article describes an inhomogeneous Poisson point process in the plane with an intensity function based on a Dirichlet tessellation process and a method for using observations on the point process to make fully Bayesian inferences about the underlying tessellation. The method is implemented using a Markov chain Monte Carlo approach. An application to modeling the territories of clans of badgers, Meles meles, is described.
