Abstract

Examples of scientific problems and data analyses are presented for the fields of demography, neurophysiology, and seismology. The examples are connected by the involvement of space or time. The demographic problem is to display quantities derived from spatially aggregated data and associated measures of uncertainty. The neurophysiological problem is to infer the presence of complex pathways among groups of neurons given sequences of firing times. There are two seismological problems: (1) to determine isoseismals of recorded intensities following the Loma Prieta earthquake and (2) to relate intensity and acceleration values measured at distinct locations. The statistical analyses are connected to each other by the application of smoothing in some form and by the provision of consequent graphical displays.
