In Part I the reader is introduced to the methods of measuring the fractal dimension of irregular geometric structures. Part II demonstrates important modern methods for the statistical analysis of random shapes. The statistical theory of point fields, with and without marks, is introduced in Part III. Each of the three sections concentrates on the mathematical ideas, rather than detailed proofs, and can be read independently.
