In this paper, we have presented a new method for computing the best-fitted rectangle for closed regions using their boundary points. The vertices of the best-fitted rectangle are computed using a bisection method starting with the upper-estimated rectangle and the under-estimated rectangle. The vertices of the upper- and under-estimated rectangles are(More)
