Analysing Dependence Between Point Processes in Time Using IndTestPP PDF download
Cebrián, A.C., Asín and J.

Abstract The need of analysing the dependence between two or more point processes in time appears in many modelling problems related to the occurrence of events, such as the occurrence of climate events at different spatial locations, or synchrony detection in spike train analysis. The package IndTestPP provides a general framework for all the steps in this type of analysis, and one of its main features is the implementation of three families of tests to study independence given the intensities of the processes, which are not only useful to assess independence but also to identify factors causing dependence. The package also includes functions for generating different types of dependent point processes, and implements computational statistical inference tools using them. An application to characterize the dependence between the occurrence of extreme heat events in three Spanish locations using the package is shown.
