Voronoi Diagram in a Simple Polygon (Eng.)
Since the early 1980s, many classical geometric problems have been studied in the presence of polygonal obstacles. In the presence of polygonal obstacles, the distance of two points is measured by the length of a shortest path between the two points avoiding obstacles. In this talk, I introduce my recent results including an O(n+m\log m)-time algorithm for computing the Voronoi diagram of m points in a simple n-gon. This result matches the best known lower bound of \Omega(n+m\log m). This also answers the longstanding question whether the geodesic Voronoi diagram can be computed optimally, which was explicitly posed by Aronov [Algorithmica, 1989] and Mitchell [Handbook of Computational Geometry, 2000].
