Quermass-interaction processes: conditions for stability

W. S. Kendall, M. N. M. van Lieshout, A. J. Baddeley
1999 Advances in Applied Probability  
Given a Poisson point process, on each point one places a grain, a (possibly random) compact convex set. Let Ξ be the union of all grains.  ...  We consider a class of random point and germ-grain processes, obtained using a rather natural weighting procedure.  ...  Part of WSK's work on this project was funded by the EU research grant ERB-CHRX-CT94-0449.  ...

Random Set Theory and Problems of Modeling

Noel Cressie, G. M. Laslett
1987 SIAM Review  
Collections of objects (the data) are assimilated to a random set (the model), whose parameters provide description and/or explanation.  ...  The purpose of this article is to show the potentials and limitations of a probabilistic and statistical approach.  ...  We would like to thank the referees for perceptive comments which led to substantial improvements in the paper.  ...

Analysis of femtocell coverage fraction and isolated probability using stochastic geometry

Huanle Zhang, Jian Liu, Yupeng Jia, Yulu Ma
2013 2013 IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM)  
The randomness of the locations of femtocells brings us a lot of difficulties to analyze and compare.  ...  Then, we add restriction on the minimum distance between each femtocell base station and compare the performance of cases with and without restrictions.  ...  Then the associated Boolean model is the union: Ξ BM = i (x i + Ξ i ) (2) In Boolean model, points and RACs are also called germs and grains, respectively.  ...

Generalizing the Abbott–Firestone curve by two new surface descriptors

J. Schmähling, F.A. Hamprecht
2007 Wear  
By comparing measured and analytically calculated functions, one can estimate model parameters from the characterizing functions, which then serve as simplified surface descriptors.  ...  In surface characterization tasks, the material ratio function is one of the most important tools and the basis for many parameters defined in international standards.  ...  At each of these random points (also called germs), a 3D-object (called a grain) of random shape and rotation is placed 7 .  ...

2009 IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications  
Often, the location of the nodes in the network can be modeled as random, following for example a Poisson point process.  ...  In this case, different techniques based on stochastic geometry and the theory of random geometric graphs -including point process theory, percolation theory, and probabilistic combinatorics -have led  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The first two authors would like to acknowledge the support of DARPA IPTO's IT-MANET program through grant W911NF-07-1-0028.  ...

Millimeter Wave Integrated Access and Backhaul in 5G: Performance Analysis and Design Insights [article]

Chiranjib Saha, Harpreet S. Dhillon
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In fact, this tight integration of access and backhaul is one of the key ways in which 5G millimeter wave (mm-wave) heterogeneous cellular networks (HetNets) differ from traditional settings where the  ...  Our analysis also shows that it is not possible to improve the user rate in an IAB setting by simply densifying the SBSs due to the bottleneck on the rate of wireless backhaul links between MBS and SBS  ...  On the contrary, the association cells have much regular shape (see Figs. 3(a) and 3(b)) if we consider spatial correlation of link states which is induced by the germ-grain model.  ...
