Download Delaunay Triangulations Chapter 9, pdf All figures a pdf for each chapter, zip De berg computational geometry pseudocode on separate pages, pdf About the third edition This third edition contains two major additions: In Chapter 7, on Voronoi diagrams, we now also discuss Voronoi diagrams of line segments and farthest-point Voronoi diagrams.

In Chapter 13, we have included an extra section on binary space partition trees for low-density scenes, as an introduction to realistic input de berg computational geometry.

In addition, a large number of small and some larger errors have been corrected see the list of errata for the second edition on the Web site.

We have also updated the notes and comments of de berg computational geometry chapter to include references to recent results and recent literature. We have tried not to change the numbering of sections and exercises, so that it should be possible for students in a course to still use the second edition.

The pages are almost square with a large margin containing over figures.

To get an idea about the style and format, take a look at Chapter 1, the Introduction or Chapter 9 on Delaunay triangulations.

Computational geometry Computational geometry emerged from the field de berg computational geometry algorithms design and analysis in the late s. It has grown into a recognized discipline with its own journals, conferences, and a large community of active researchers.

The success of the field as a research discipline can on the one hand be explained from the beauty of the problems studied and the solutions obtained, and, on the other hand, by the many application domainscomputer graphics, geographic information systems GISrobotics, and othersin which geometric algorithms play a fundamental role.

For many geometric de berg computational geometry the early algorithmic solutions were either slow or difficult to understand and implement.

Computational geometry: algorithms and applications, 3rd Edition - Semantic Scholar

In recent years a number of new de berg computational geometry techniques have been developed that improved and simplified many of the previous approaches. In this textbook we have tried to make these modern algorithmic solutions accessible to a large audience.

The book has been written as a textbook for a course in computational geometry, but it can also be used for self study.

Structure of the book Each of the sixteen chapters, except the introductory chapter, starts with a problem arising in one of the application domains. This problem is then transformed into a de berg computational geometry geometric one, which is solved using techniques from computational geometry.


The geometric problem and the concepts and techniques needed to solve it are the real topic of each chapter. The choice of the applications was guided by the topics in computational geometry we wanted to cover; they are not meant de berg computational geometry provide a good coverage of the application domains.

Computational Geometry, Algorithms and Applications

The purpose of the applications is to motivate the reader; the goal of the chapters is not to provide ready-to-use solutions for them. Having de berg computational geometry this, we believe that knowledge of computational geometry is important to solve geometric problems in application areas efficiently.

We hope that our book will not only raise the interest of people from the algorithms de berg computational geometry, but also from people in the application areas. For most geometric problems treated we give just one solution, even when a number of different solutions exist.

  • Account Options

In general we have chosen the solution that is most easy to understand and implement. This is not necessarily the most efficient solution.


We also took care that the book contains a good mixture of techniques like divide-and-conquer, plane sweep, and randomized algorithms.
