The Area of a Random Convex Polygon

Abstract [en]

We consider the area of the convex hull of n random points in a square. We give the distribution function of thearea for three and four points. We also present some results on the number of vertices of the convex hull. Results from Monte Carlo tests with large n are presented and compared with asymptotic estimates.
