A compact convex set in RN
is Steiner if it is a finite Minkowski sum of line segments, or a limit of such finite sums, and then satisfies an extension of the Steiner formula. With each Poisson hyperplane stationary process A is uniquely associated a Steiner set M, and for any linear variety V, the Steiner set associated with is the projection of M on V. The density of the order k network Ak
(i.e., the set of the intersections of k hyperplanes belonging to A) is linked with simple geometrical properties of M. In the isotropic case, the expression of the covariance measures associated with Ak
is derived and compared with the analogous results obtained for (N — k)-dimensional Poisson flats.
