Integral geometry and geometric probability by Luis A Santaló( Book )

10 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available in the Cambridge Mathematical Library, the classic work from Luis Santaló. Integral geometry originated with problems on geometrical probability and convex bodies. Its later developments, however, have proved to be useful in several fields ranging from pure mathematics (measure theory, continuous groups) to technical and applied disciplines (pattern recognition, stereology). The book is a systematic exposition of the theory and a compilation of the main results in the field. The volume can be used to complement courses on differential geometry, Lie groups or probability or differential geometry. It is ideal both as a reference and for those wishing to enter the field
