The generating function of a marginal distribution of the reduced Palm distribution of a spatial point process is considered. It serves as a bivariate summary function, providing more information than some other popular univariate summary functions, such as the reduced second-moment function and the nearest-neighbour distance distribution function. Simulation confirmed that the new summary function is more informative when applied to patterns that exhibit both clustering and regularity on the same scale of observation.
