A stereological estimator of the weighted mean volume of particles of arbitrary shape is described. This unbiased estimator is based on simple point-sampling of linear intercept lengths. The complete absence of shape assumptions effectively breaks the long-standing 'convexity-barrier': the only requirement here is that individual particles can be unambiguously identified by their profiles on random sections. Practical details of the simple estimation procedure and an example with very irregular… CONTINUE READING
