Embraced Serena with a smile as warm
As the gay spirit Vegetation wears,
When she to crown her favourite nymph prepares;
When pleased her flowery treasures to display,
She pours them in the lap of youthful May.

In science:

For our simulation we use a nonstationary local Mat´ern, presented below that has a closed form covariance, can attain any degree of differentiability or H¨older smoothness and behaves locally like a stationary Mat´ern.
Local likelihood estimation of local parameters for nonstationary random fields
Let Mν (·) (cid:44) | · |ν Kν (·) where Kν is the modified Bessel function of the second kind and let νt, σt and αt denote spatially varying Mat´ern parameters.
Local likelihood estimation of local parameters for nonstationary random fields
This is recognized as an isotropic Mat´ern autocovariance with parameterization found on page 50 of .
Local likelihood estimation of local parameters for nonstationary random fields
Originally presented in, the proof combines the results found in, for generating a spatially varying geometric anisotropy with those found in for generating a local isotropic Mat´ern with spatially varying smoothness parameter.
Local likelihood estimation of local parameters for nonstationary random fields
This can be overcome by an additional hard-core condition, as in the classic Mat´ern process; see and references therein for a formulation that matches our setting.

Somewhat surprisingly, we have now ventured back into the more common parts of spatial statistics: Whittle (1954, 1963) showed that, for any α > d/2, the solution to (6) has a Mat´ern covariance function.
Think continuous: Markovian Gaussian models in spatial statistics
Since the spectral density for a Mat´ern field in dimension d with parameters ν, φ2, and κ is given by (2), one finds that the corresponding symmetric non-negative kernel is a Mat´ern 4, φk = √φ, and κk = κ.
Spatial Mat\'ern fields driven by non-Gaussian noise
As discussed in Lindgren, Rue and Lindstr¨om (2011), there is an implicit assumption of appropriate boundary conditions needed if one wants the solutions to be stationary Mat´ern fields.
Spatial Mat\'ern fields driven by non-Gaussian noise
Using the relation between α and the parameter ν in the Mat´ern covariance function, α = ν + d/2, we see that X ∈ Hm almost surely for m < ν .
Spatial Mat\'ern fields driven by non-Gaussian noise
We now go back to the special case of Laplace noise and since the main interest here is ordinary random fields with Mat´ern covariance functions, we from now on assume that α > d/2 in (8).
Spatial Mat\'ern fields driven by non-Gaussian noise
Since X is Laplace noise convolved with a Green function, which also has the form of a Mat´ern covariance function, the model is equivalent to the Laplace moving average models in ˚Aberg, Podg´orski and Rychlik (2009), ˚Aberg and Podg´orski (2011).
Spatial Mat\'ern fields driven by non-Gaussian noise
Simpson (2008) studied such methods for sampling generalized Mat´ern fields on locally planar Riemannian manifolds, and argued that one could sample the stochastic weights for a general α using the matrix transfer equation (C−1K)α/2w ∼ N(0, C−1 ).
Spatial Mat\'ern fields driven by non-Gaussian noise
The upper right panel shows the empirical covariance function for the samples (grey curve) together with the true Mat´ern covariance function (black curve).
