Geostatistics

Code: MINES1, ECTS: 2

Syllabus

This course aims at giving basic elements for the mathematical modeling of regionalized phenomena by probabilistic methods. It also provides a first introduction to geostatistics.

Requisit

The Probability course of MINES ParisTech, or equivalent.

Programme

The course is based on three spatial stochastic model prototypes, i.e. the Poisson processes, the Boolean model and the Gaussian random functions model.

  • Two days are devoted to the study of random sets, in particular to their geometric properties and to their simulation.
  • Three days build on the Gaussian random functions model and cover spatial regression techniques (kriging) and simulation algorithms (either non-conditional or with constraints).
While half of the course consists of lectures, the other half is devoted to exercises and to applications involving the public domain software R (www.r-project.org).


Evaluation means
