A fourth note on recent research in geometrical probability

  • Adrian Baddeley (a1)


Recent research on topics related to geometrical probability is reviewed. The survey includes articles on random points, lines, line-segments and flats in Euclidean spaces, the random division of space, coverage, packing, random sets, stereology and probabilistic aspects of integral geometry.
