# An Efficient Algorithm for 2D Euclidean 2-Center with Outliers

• Published 2008 in ESA

#### Abstract

For a set P of n points in R, the Euclidean 2-center problem computes a pair of congruent disks of the minimal radius that cover P . We extend this to the (2, k)-center problem where we compute the minimal radius pair of congruent disks to cover n − k points of P . We present a randomized algorithm with O(nk log n) expected running time for the (2, k… (More)
