From December 1996 to December 1999 I have done my Ph.D. studies at the Department of Mathematics and Physics, The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University (KVL), Denmark. The work is described in the following thesis:

and perfect simulation

for point processes observed with noise

Jens Lund

December 1999

Online summary of ph.d. thesis.

(An older report *Spatial
models related to trees* for a ph.d. midterm seminar also
describes the ph.d. project. An online version of the
report with some quirks is also present.)

The defence was on Friday 25th February, 2000.

The thesis can be downloaded as the following papers:

Update January 2000: The idea presented here has turned out not to work. It produces samples from the wrong distribution. Please read Section 3.4 in the introductory part of the thesis to get an idea of what goes wrong. If you still want a copy, please contact me.

Please, also have a look at my list of publications, where updated versions of the papers in the thesis will be available.
