Özet

The orthogonal transformed indicator approach to conditional cumulative distribution functions is based on the decomposition of the indicator variogram matrix as a matrix product. This paper explores the manner in which the decomposition algorithm affects the conditional cumulative distribution function as estimated by orthogonal transformed indicator kriging. Five decomposition algorithms are considered: spectral, Cholesky symmetric, Cholesky-spectral, and simultaneous decompositions. Impact of the algorithms on spatial orthogonality and order relations problems is examined and their performances together with indicator kriging are compared using a real dataset.
