|Computational Geometry is concerned with designing algorithms and computer programs to perform geometric computations. A need for such computations arises in many fields: computer graphics, robotics, pattern recognition, geography, manufacturing, etc. This site includes links to books, papers, and code (papers and code available via ftp) by Prof. Joseph O'Rourke, Olin Professor of Computer Science at Smith College, on discrete and computational geometry. Books: Handbook of Discrete and Computational Geometry (1997); Computational Geometry in C (1994); Art Gallery Theorems and Algorithms (1987). Also The Open Problems Project, and the comp.graphics.algorithms FAQ, in HTML and FTP gzipped text versions.|
