Informative art

Johan Redström, Tobias Skog, Lars Hallnäs
2000 Proceedings of DARE 2000 on Designing augmented reality environments - DARE '00

1993 arXiv   pre-print
We illustrate the method by applying it to a Poisson process, a 'double-Poisson' process, and to the Abell catalogue of galaxy clusters.  ...  The method is numerically robust even for small samples, independent of statistical assumptions, and yields global as well as local morphological information.  ...  Acknowledgements: We would like to thank John A. Peacock for providing us the new Abell cluster catalogue, and Jürgen Ehlers for valuable remarks on the manuscript.  ...
