Abstract:
The characterization of spatial growth patterns is a pre-condition for the causal analysis of growth processes. The distribution of growth intensities in space are best expressed as Relative Elemental Growth Rates, (REGR). A multitude of alternative methods to determine REGR-profiles has been described, but a quantitative, comparative analysis is still lacking to date. A central problem for a methodological re-evaluation is that empirical REGR-profiles will always be estimative, since an accurate determination would require actual measurements of velocities at one instant of time. In principle, a comparison of estimates cannot establish a judgment concerning their relative accuracies; this can only be achieved by comparison of the estimates to a known REGR-profile. Therefore an assessment of the reliability of methods of REGR-profile determination must necessarily be based on a theoretical profile.
