The aim of this chapter is to introduce the basic tools and structures of stochastic geometry and thus to lay the foundations for much of the book. Before this, a brief historic account will reflect the development from elementary geometric probabilities over heuristic principles in applications to the advanced models employed in modern stochastic geometry. After the basic geometric and stochastic concepts have been presented, their interplay will be demonstrated by typical examples.

Keywords:   stochastic geometry, geometric probabilities, heuristic principles
