Central Limit Theorems for the Radial Spanning Tree
MFO Scientific ProgramResearch in Pairs 2014
Consider a homogeneous Poisson point process in a compact convex set in d-dimensional Euclidean space which has interior points and contains the origin. The radial spanning tree is constructed by connecting each point of the Poisson point process with its nearest neighbour that is closer to the origin. For increasing intensity of the underlying Poisson point process the paper provides expectation and variance asymptotics as well as central limit theorems with rates of convergence for a class of edge functionals including the total edge length.
