Abstract:

This report lists the probability density function and distribution function of distance from a point randomly located in a polygon to the ith nearest corner for the following polygons square, diamond, and rectangle. Also, low order moments and moment constants are tabulated for these order distances. The three lowest orders of distance for the square and the diamond pertain identically to the three lowest orders of distance for the square and hexagonal lattices, and the two lowest orders of distance for the rectangle apply identically to the two lowest orders of distances for the primitive rectangular lattice.
