An Inscribing Model for Random Polytopes



For convex bodies K with \(\mathcal {C}^{2}\) boundary in ℝd, we explore random polytopes with vertices chosen along the boundary of K. In particular, we determine asymptotic properties of the volume of these random polytopes. We provide results concerning the variance and higher moments of this functional, as well as an analogous central limit theorem.
