Volume of geometric objects has been studied by the ancient Greek mathematicians. Even today volume continues to play an important role in applied as well as pure mathematics. In discrete geometry, which is a relatively new branch of geometry, volume plays a significant role in generating new topics for research. The author?s goal is to demonstrate the recent aspects of volume in particular, volumetric method within discrete geometry. Part I consists of survey chapters of selected topics on volume and Part II consisting of chapters of selected proofs of theorems stated in Part I.
