Discrete observations from data that are obtained from sparse, and yet concentrated events are often observed (e.g. road accidents or murders). Traditional methods to compute summary statistics often include placing the data in discrete bins but for this type of …
The coverage that the media places on a specific event or topic has an exponential decay. The coverage given to an event drops by half every eight days.
A model to detect the spatial concentration of crashes, either using a tessellation or a linear partition of a highway,
A novel mobility model to detect whether city size affects the propensity of moving and the destinations picked by migrants.
Detecting the impact that different concentrations of crime have on the level of fear in a city.
We propose, as early career researchers, that it is our task to change scientific research into open scientific research and commit to Open Science principles.
A new mathematical model for quantifying the fear of crime in a city
Measuring the concentration of crime among victims using a novel technique based on rare events.
Four metrics to compare cities beyond only population.
A metric is suggested here to determine first the regional perception of security from a location and then to quantify its relationship with different victimisation rates.
