Stereology — a view towards the future

Open Access

Attached document(s)



Two directions in which stereology may evolve in the future are suggested. First, the use of ideas of mathematical morphology enables the estimation of functions describing the local properties of a structure. Secondly, the integration of stereology into model building within its user disciplines enables prediction of properties of a diverse range of materials on the basis of their geometrical structure.

Keywords : mathematical morphology, modelling, stereology
