Fundamental techniques, data structures, and algorithms for solving geometric problems such as computing convex hulls, intersection of line segments, the Voronoi diagram and Delaunay triangulation of a point set, polygon triangulation, range search, linear programming, and point location. Some topics of discrete geometry, e.g., the crossing number of a graph and its applications, are also covered.
(10/10/02) The final grades are available here.
(06/08/02) The votes for a new date for Moed B contained one veto on changing it. Therefore the exam will take place in its original date: 7/OCT/2002.
(09/07/02) Ex3 was checked by my TA. You can get your marked solutions either in my office (T-428) or from Debbie Miller (T-427).
(25/06/02) Ex2 was checked by my TA. You can get your marked solutions from Debbie Miller, office T-427.
(20/06/02) Ex3 is available. Enjoy!
(09/06/02) Apropos the previous message. Debbie is NOT my TA, so don't complain to her about grades...
(02/06/02) Ex1 was checked by my TA. You can get your marked solutions from Debbie Miller, office T-427.
(31/05/02) Ex2 is available. Enjoy!
(27/05/02) I got 5 ex1 submissions of people not registered to the course's mailing list. These students are requested to register asap!
(08/05/02) The lectures of 19/5, 23/5 and 6/6 are canceled. There will be one compensation lecture in 16/6 4:30pm in T-6.
(26/04/02) Ex1 is available. Enjoy!
(22/04/02) Here is a link to good computational-geometry lecture notes, by David Mount from Univ. of Maryland (thanks to Eyal Rozenberg).
(18/03/02) In order to register to the mailing list of the course (which has nothing to do with the formal registration to the course), please send me your full name, id, e-mail account(s) (to which you want messages to be sent), faculty, and degree toward which you are studying.
