A brief review of Aboav's law (the relationship between the average number of edges of a randomly chosen neighboring cell of a typical n-cell and n) and Lewis' law (the relationship between the mean area of a typical n-cell and n) is presented. These two laws now play central roles in Rivier's maximum entropy theory of statistical crystallography. A discussion of the mathematical forms of these laws is our emphasis in this article.
