Abstract

A short introduction to the basic mathematical principles which govern stereology and morphometry is given. The selection of principles introduced was chosen to cover the needs of a pathologist active in diagnostic histopathology. For one to get an overall picture of the fields of morphometry and stereology also and acquaintance with statistics of sampling and potential computer applications is necessary.
