Some important variables of the simplicial graph are described. Their distributions provide a rigorous definition of a spatial point pattern. Their distributions are however distorted for spatial models where it is more appropriate to think of discs rather than points. Monte Carlo simulation has been used to generate the distributions of the simplicial graph for one type of disc model. Forest, Sci. 28:181-186.
