Estimating a Non-Stationary Spatial Structure Using Simulated Annealing
Olivier Perrin and Serge Iovleff
In the last decade, a useful model for non-stationary random fields has been developed. This consists of reducing the random field of interest to isotropy via
a bijective bi-continuous deformation of the index space. Then the problem consists of estimating this space deformation. We propose to estimate this space deformation using a constrained continuous version of the simulated annealing for a Metropolis dynamic.
