Abstract This paper has two agendas. Firstly, we exhibit new results for coverage processes. Let $p(n,m,a)$ be the probability that n spherical caps of angular radius $a$ in $S^m$ do not cover the whole sphere $S^m$. We give an exact formula for $p(n,m,a)$ in the case $ain [fracpi2,pi]$ and an upper bound for $p(n,m,a)$ in the case $ain [0,fracpi2]$, which tends to $p(n,m,fracpi2)$ when $atofracpi2$. In the case $ain [0,fracpi2]$ this yields upper bounds for the expected number of spherical caps of radius $a$ that are needed to cover $S^m$. Secondly, we study the condition number $CC(A)$ of the linear programming feasibility problem $exists xinmathbb R^m+1, Axłe 0,, xne 0$, where $Ainmathbb R^n× (m+1)$ is randomly chosen according to the standard normal distribution. We exactly determine the distribution of $CC(A)$ conditioned to $A$ being feasible and provide an upper bound on the distribution function in the infeasible case. Using these results, we show that $mathbf E(łn CC(A))łe 2łn(m+1) + 3.31$ for all $n>m$, the sharpest bound for this expectancy as of today. Both agendas are related through a result which translates between coverage and condition.
