Stochastic Geometry

  • David Aldous
Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 77)


Readers who do not have any particular knowledge of stochastic geometry should be reassured to learn that the author doesn’t, either. This chapter contains problems with a geometric (2-dimensional, mostly) setting which can be solved heuristically without any specialized geometric arguments. One exception is that we will need some properties of the Poisson line process at Section H2: this process is treated in Solomon (1978), which is the friendliest introduction to stochastic geometry.
