Course objectives
A survey of computational geometry. We stress is on various paradigms for algorithm design (one-way run, recursive `divide and conquer', sweep, randomized, geometric transformations), on the necessary data structures, on estimates for the worth-case or expected parameters. At the end of this course, students should be able to implement the basic algorithms of computational geometry.
