Abstract. Recent developments in the stereological analysis of particles are reviewed. The trend has been towards methods which are applicable without specific assumptions about particle shape. Geometric samples of a local 3-d character are used. Stereological estimators of particle intensity, particle size distribution and particle interaction are presented and discussed.
Key words and phrases: Intensity, K-function, mark distribution, marked point processes, measure decomposition, nucleator, second-order properties, stereology, stochastic geometry.
