We present a deterministic algorithm for computing the convex hull ofn points inEd in optimalO(n logn+n⌞d/2⌟) time. Optimal solutions were previously known only in even dimension and in dimension 3. A by-product of our result is an algorithm for computing the Voronoi diagram ofn points ind-space in optimalO(n logn+n⌜d/2⌝) time.
