https://kluedo.ub.uni-kl.de/frontdoor/index/index/docId/3273
It is often helpful to compute the intrinsic volumes of a set of which only a pixel image is observed. A computational efficient approach, which is suggested by several authors and used in practice, is to approximate the intrinsic volumes by a linear functional of the pixel configuration histogram. Here we want to examine, whether there is an optimal way of choosing this linear functional, where we will use a quite natural optimality criterion that has already been applied successfully for the estimation of the surface area. We will see that for intrinsic volumes other than volume or surface area this optimality criterion cannot be used, since estimators which ignore the data and return constant values are optimal w.r.t. this criterion. This shows that one has to be very careful, when intrinsic volumes are approximated by a linear functional of the pixel configuration histogram.Jürgen Kampfpreprinthttps://kluedo.ub.uni-kl.de/frontdoor/index/index/docId/3273Mon, 01 Oct 2012 15:52:05 +0200Asymptotic Order of the Parallel Volume Difference
https://kluedo.ub.uni-kl.de/frontdoor/index/index/docId/2912
In this paper we investigate the asymptotic behaviour of the parallel volume
of fixed non-convex bodies in Minkowski spaces as the distance \(r\) tends to infinity.
We will show that the difference of the parallel volume of the convex hull of a
body and the parallel volume of the body itself can at most have order \(r^{d-2}\) in a \(d\)-dimensional space. Then we will show that in Euclidean spaces this difference can at most have order \(r^{d-3}\). These results have several applications, e.g. we will use
them to compute the derivative of \(f_\mu(rK)\) in \(r = 0\), where \(f_\mu\) is the Wills functional
or a similar functional, \(K\) is a body and \(rK\) is the Minkowski-product of \(r\) and \(K\). Finally we present applications concerning Brownian paths and Boolean models and derive new proofs for formulae for intrinsic volumes.Jürgen Kampfpreprinthttps://kluedo.ub.uni-kl.de/frontdoor/index/index/docId/2912Mon, 27 Feb 2012 10:09:25 +0100
