ON THE VOLUME FROM PLANAR SECTIONS THROUGH A CURVE
Keywords:Cavalieri, curve, planar sections, space form, unbiased estimator, volume
AbstractWe derive a formula to obtain the volume of a compact domain from planar sections through a curve. From this formula we propose a stereological estimator for the volume which generalizes some known unbiased estimators which use a systematic sampling scheme. Moreover we formulate a Cavalieri's principle for compact domains is spaces of constant curvature λ.
