Computational geometry : an introduction by Franco P Preparata ( Book )
38 editions published between 1985 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A fundamental task of computational geometry is identifying concepts, properties and techniques which help efficient algorithmic implementations for geometric problems. The approach taken here is the presentations of algorithms and the evaluation of their worst case complexity. The particular problems addressed include geometric searching and retrieval, convex hull construction and related problems, proximity, intersection and the geometry of rectangles

Geometry and statistics : problems at the interface by Michael Ian Shamos ( Book )
2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this paper the author approaches the analysis of statistics algorithms from a geometric viewpoint and uses techniques from computational geometry to develop new, fast algorithms for computing familiar statistical quantities. Such fundamental procedures as sorting and selection play an important role in nonparametric estimation as well as in correlation and regression and the author uses known results to obtain lower bounds on the time required to perform various statistical tests. For some problems, computing the test statistic is NP-hard. While geometric insight is helpful in understanding statistical calculations, the reverse is also true -- statistical methods are employed to analyze the average case of geometric algorithms
A problem in multivariate statistics : algorithm, data structure and applications by Jon Louis Bentley ( Book )
2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Problems and applications are investigated which are associated with computing the empirical cumulative distribution function of N points in k-dimensional space and a multidimensional divide-and-conquer technique is employed that gives rise to a compact data structure for geometric and statistical search problems. A large number of important statistical quantities are computed much faster than was previously possible
