Särkkä, Aila Could ideas from mathematical models for material structures be used in tree crown modelling? Keynote Downloadable

Function of a material is determined by its structure and therefore, many mathematical models have been constructed for 3D material structures. For example, fiber structures and porous structures have been modelled by using point processes, tessellations and random fields. In this talk, it will be demonstrated how the so-called Gibbs point processes can be used to model pore and gel structures. In addition, point process models for fiber structures will be discussed. Since these structures seem to have some similarities with tree crown structures, models for them may give some ideas for tree crown modelling.
