Editorial Reviews

"Pawlowsky-Glahn (Department of Informatics and Applied Mathematics, University of Girona) gives the general framework for regionalized compositions as well as for cokriging of a whole vector. She introduces basic concepts and definitions for regionalized compositions (r-compositions), thenpresents the definition of the spatial covariance structure for r-compositions and treats expressions of null cross-correlation for r-compositions. She describes the estimation technique known as cokriging, and illustrates procedures with a geological example."--SciTech Book News
