The center-satellite model for describing the distribution of defects on wafers is discussed. This model assigns each defect to a cluster. The distribution of cluster centers on a wafer is one basic component of the model. The other basic component is the distribution of defects (satellites) about the cluster centers. Physical justification for the model is provided. Current yield models are qu
