Abstract

We draw the attention of stereologists to some recent developments in the theory of random spatial patterns (Arak and Surgailis, 1989; Baddeley and Møller, 1989; Clifford, 1989; Ripley, 1989) which may be useful in the study of spatial interactions in a multiphase structure. This paper is intended as a non-mathematical introduction to the field. We describe the basic concept of a Markov chain, then briefly survey the new developments.

Keywords : covariance, Markov processes, nearest-neighbour interaction, random mosaics, spatial statistics
