This chapter deals with random polytopes which are the convex hulls of random points. Recent developments concern mainly distributional aspects of functionals of random polytopes: estimates for higher moments, limit theorems, and large deviation inequalities. The geometric tools which led to this progress are the floating body and the visibility regions which are described in detail.
