I don't believe that there is any (possible) answer to your question. I
happy to be corrected in this regard.
What do you mean by ``interaction "power" ''?
As far as I know, if the temporal direction is to be treated differently
dimensions, then there is no appropriate analogue of the K function
you cannot attack ``temporal interaction and spatio-temporal
interaction'' in this
I believe that you need to formulate your goals much more clearly and
If your goals can be so formulated then it may be possible to develop
to achieve them. However my guess is that such development would
major research undertaking.
