Item description for Statistical Physics and Spatial Statistics: The Art of Analyzing Spatial Structures and Pattern Formation by Klaus R. Mecke, Dietrich Stoyan, John T. McMinn, Marc A. Prevost, Matt Del Giudice, John Reisbord, John F. Schank & Michael Hayes...
Modern physics is confronted with a large variety of complex spatial patterns. Although both spatial statisticians and statistical physicists study random geometrical structures, there has been only little interaction between the two up to now because of different traditions and languages. This volume aims to change this situation by presenting in a clear way fundamental concepts of spatial statistics which are of great potential value for condensed matter physics and materials sciences in general, and for porous media, percolation and Gibbs processes in particular. Geometric aspects, in particular ideas of stochastic and integral geometry, play a central role throughout. With nonspecialist researchers and graduate students also in mind, prominent physicists give an excellent introduction here to modern ideas of statistical physics pertinent to this exciting field of research.
