Abstract

We review progress made in quantitatively ascertaining the various statistical correlation functions that are fundamental to determining the material properties of specific classes of disordered materials. Topics covered include the definitions of the correlation functions, a unified theoretical means of representing and computing the different statistical descriptors, structural characterization from two-dimensional and three-dimensional images of materials, scalar order metrics and particle packings, and reconstruction techniques.
