G. Matheron, J. Serra, and their colleagues at the Centre de Morphologie Mathématique of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Paris have developed a novel theory and device for studying geometric aspects of two-dimensional sets which is of considerable interest to statisticians and petrographers (especially sedimentary petrographers). A stationary random set, regarded as the union of subsets, is scanned at discrete points in a finite region D, and the results are stored in a computer. The theory indicates how programs should be written to estimate quantities such as the size distribution of subsets (granulometric properties) and their mutual relations (structural properties). This paper provides an introduction to their work.
