Laws of large numbers in stochastic geometry with statistical applications
Given n independent random marked d-vectors (points) Xi distributed with a common density, define the measure νn=∑iξi, where ξi is a measure (not necessarily a point measure) which stabilizes; this means that ξi is determined by the (suitably rescaled) set of points near Xi. For bounded test functions f on Rd, we give weak and strong laws of large numbers for νn(f). The general results are applied to demonstrate that an unknown set A in d-space can be consistently estimated, given data on which of the points Xi lie in A, by the corresponding union of Voronoi cells, answering a question raised by Khmaladze and Toronjadze. Further applications are given concerning the Gamma statistic for estimating the variance in nonparametric regression.
