Rectangle in Polygon Containment References?

I am looking for references of an algorithm for containing a rectangle
within a polygon. This is a specific case of the polygon containment

I have been able to find references to triangle within a convex
polygon, but I want to determine if a rectangle will fit within any
general non-intersecting polygon.

Any help would be appreciated.
