Abstract

Two models of the origin basaltic columnar jointing are studied. The first, the model of Stini, is recognized as not suitable by simple geometrical argumentations. The second one is basing on the random point process of vertices of cross-sections of basaltic columns. This point process is approximated by a hard-core process known from the statistical literature. Simple rules for jointing the points produce polygonal patterns as observed in nature.
