A Comparison of Sequential Delaunay Triangulation Algorithms

  title={A Comparison of Sequential Delaunay Triangulation Algorithms},
  author={Peter Su and Robert L. Scot Drysdale},
  journal={Comput. Geom.},
This paper presents an experimental comparison of a number of different algorithms for computing the Deluanay triangulation. The algorithms examined are: Dwyer’s divide and conquer algorithm, Fortune’s sweepline algorithm, several versions of the incremental algorithm (including one by Ohya, Iri, and Murota, a new bucketing-based algorithm described in this paper, and Devillers’s version of a Delaunay-tree based algorithm that appears in LEDA), an algorithm that incrementally adds a correct… CONTINUE READING
