Computational Geometry

  • Steven S. Skiena


Computational geometry is the algorithmic study of geometric problems. Its emergence coincided with application areas such as computer graphics, computer-aided design/manufacturing, and scientific computing, which together provide much of the motivation for geometric computing. The past twenty years have seen enormous maturity in computational geometry, resulting in a significant body of useful algorithms, software, textbooks, and research results.
