Abstract: We give a survey on a recent algebraic approach to kinematic
formulas. The two main notions are that of "valuation" and of "curvature
measure". It turns out that the space of valuations is an algebra and the
space of curvature measures is a module over this algebra. On isotropic
spaces, these algebraic structures are closely related to kinematic
formulas. The kinematic formulas on complex space forms have been worked out
explicitly (joint work with Joseph Fu and Gil Solanes).
