  • It is shown that any bounded region in <italic>E</italic><supscrpt><italic>d</italic></supscrpt> can be divided into 2<supscrpt><italic>d</italic></supscrpt> subregions of equal volume in such a way that no hyperplane in <italic>E</italic><supscrpt><italic>d</italic></supscrpt> can intersect all 2<supscrpt><italic>d</italic></supscrpt> of the subregions. This theorem provides the basis of a data structure scheme for organizing <italic>n</italic> points in <italic>d</italic> dimensions. Under… CONTINUE READING
