Measures and Plots of Dispersion

  • Hans Wackernagel


We include an account about the geometrical meaning of two measures of dispersion: the variance and the selectivity. This is based on Matheron [176][177] and Lantuéjoul [143][144]. The context is mining economics, but a parallel to analog concerns in the evaluation of time series from environmental monitoring is drawn at the end of the chapter.
