In Section 3.4 we gave a brief introduction to the Palm-Khinchin equations and noted that, for a stationary point process on the line, they provide a partial link between counting and interval properties. In this chapter we study this link both in more detail and in a more general setting. It is a topic that has continued to be a focus of work over three decades, with recent theoretical study of its relation with ergodic theory and in applications to queueing theory and other fields.
