Abstract

The concepts of conditional probability and geometrical probability are used to establish a relation between the probability density of the trace length and the probability density of the discontinuity diameter. The discontinuity is represented as a thin circular disc. An example is used to illustrate the possibly large difference between the mean discontinuity diameter and the mean trace length.
