The expectation (or average) is one of the basic concepts in probability theory and statistical inference. However, this rather basic concept becomes fairly complicated for random elements in non-linear spaces. The family of compact sets is a typical example of such non-linear space, alongside with numerous possible examples that involve curved spaces. To highlight various complications, it is possible to consider a random compact set that with equal probabilities is the unit interval or its end-points, or a set that is either the circle or the disk bounded by it, or a set that takes values {0} or {0, 1}. Various definitions of expectations respect the shape of the set, its cardinality or measure, or its connectivity properties.
