I'm working on spatial distribution of points (being location of volcanoes). I found so far a linear correlation between the mean distance between nearest neighbours and the density in a semi-log plot.
I'm looking for ideas and ways to study these fields of points/volcanoes.
I'm a geologist and I'm looking for a good manual to learn about with power law distribution and maximum likehood (beginner-medium level).
My goal is to write a code to define the best straight line between an upper and lower bound in log-normal (fractal dimension)
