Georges Matheron passed on to the great beyond on 7 August 2000. He did pioneering paintings in lots of branches of utilized arithmetic, being on the starting place of geostatistics and mathematical morphology; he made additionally primary contributions to the speculation of random types. Scientists were invited to jot down chapters on particular subject matters. in an effort to receive a well-balanced quantity, the subjects to be incorporated in each one bankruptcy might be agreed upon previously. Contributions should still spotlight Georges Matheron's method of fixing difficulties, or illustrate the dynamic manner that theories or tools that have been first and foremost constructed by way of him have persevered to be efficient. at times it'll even be fascinating to teach how the explicit features of yes domain names of program resulted in the emergence of latest theories or tools. The proposed quantity could be break up into 3 major sections of roughly equivalent value: random units, geostatistics and mathematical morphology"
