New Perspectives in Stochastic Geometry

Wilfrid S. Kendall and Ilya Molchanov

Abstract

Stochastic geometry is a subject with roots stretching back at least 300 years, but one which has only been formed as an academic area in the last 50 years. It covers the study of random patterns, their probability theory, and the challenging problems raised by their statistical analysis. It has grown rapidly in response to challenges in all kinds of applied science, from image analysis through to materials science. Recently, still more stimulus has arisen from exciting new links with rapidly developing areas of mathematics, from fractals through percolation theory to randomized allocation sch ... More

Keywords: stochastic geometry, random patterns, probability theory, statistics, image analysis, material science, fractals, percolation theory, randomized allocation
