Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The multiquadric (MQ) method was discovered by Rolland L. Hardy in the late 1960s. It is a true scattered data, grid-free scheme for mapping of surfaces and volumes. It is a physically deterministic process and is related to concepts of the potential. With proper constraints it satisfies equilibrium and minimum energy conditions. The geostatistical kriging (K) method, developed by matreron in the 1960s, is a stochastic process procedure based on the theory of regionalized variables. It is claimed to be different from classical Statistics and Probability;;This dissertation consists of two major research areas: a comparative study of both the ...
