Algorithms for Closest Point Problems: Practice and Theory
Peter Su
Dartmouth PCS-TR92-185


This paper describes and evaluates know sequential algorithms for constructing planar Voronoi diagrams and Delaunay triangulations. In addition, it describes a new incremental algorithm which is simple to understand and implement, but whose performance is competitive with all known methods. The experiments in this paper are more than just simple benchmarks, they evaluate the expected performance of the algorithms in a precise and machine independent fashion. Thus, the paper also illustrates how to use experimental tools to both understand the behaviour of different algorithms and to guide the algorithm design process.
