Abstract:

The methodology of determining simultaneous visibility probabilities and points on line segments is extended to problems of three dimensional spaces, with Poisson random fields of obscuring spheres. Required functions are derived analytically and a numerical example is given for a special case of a standard Poisson field, with uniform distribution of sphere diameters. Keywords Poisson shadowing processes Lines of sight Visibility probabilities Measures of visibility Moments of visibility.
