# Contact and chord length distribution of a stationary Voronoi tessellation

@article{Heinrich1998ContactAC, title={Contact and chord length distribution of a stationary Voronoi tessellation}, author={Lothar Heinrich}, journal={Advances in Applied Probability}, year={1998}, volume={30}, pages={603 - 618} }

We give formulae for different types of contact distribution functions for stationary (not necessarily Poisson) Voronoi tessellations in ℝ d in terms of the Palm void probabilities of the generating point process. Moreover, using the well-known relationship between the linear contact distribution and the chord length distribution we derive a closed form expression for the mean chord length in terms of the two-point Palm distribution and the pair correlation function of the generating point…
