Abstract [en]

We determine the distribution functions for the area and the perimeter of a random spherical triangle. We consider two natural ‘polar’ ways of generating the random triangle. It turnsout that the distribution for the area in the first way is closely related to the distribution of the perimeter in the second way, and vice versa.
