There are numerous physical phenomena that can be modeled as a response to the points of a marked point process. The simplest models occur when the response can be expressed as a superposition of separate responses to each marked point. These models are developed in Sec. 5.2. Later, in Sec. 5.3, we remove the superposition requirement but impose the additional structure of Markov processes.
