I was reading the documentation on kriging on the ArcGIS website, and I am having trouble understanding the difference between the two formulas presented on these separate pages discussing Kriging.


How Kriging works—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop  


What are the different kriging models?—Help | ArcGIS Desktop 


From my understanding, it seems like the first page describes the general kriging formula, while the second has more to do with autocorrelation. But it's not clear. I was hoping someone could try and clarify what the two formulas represent, or provide a source that does.


Thank you.
