Matheron's Theory of Regionalised Variables

Georges Matheron, Vera Pawlowsky-Glahn, and Jean Serra


This book has never been published before, although its contents have provided the basis for hundreds of papers, theses, and books on geostatistics. The chapters are based on the lectures of a summer course given by Georges Matheron in 1970; initially written in French, they were translated into English by Charles Huijbregts. They do not contain mathematical technicalities or practical case studies; instead, they present major topics like estimation variances, kriging systems, mining estimation, and intrinsic theory, all of which are established by simple proofs. The reader is invited to wonde ... More

Keywords: linear geostatistics, mining estimation, intrinsic theory, extension variance, kriging
