In this paper, we study the problem of L1-fitting a shape to a set of n points in IR (where d is a fixed constant), where the target is to minimize the sum of distances of the points to the shape, or alternatively the sum of squared distances. We present a general technique for computing a (1 + ε)-approximation for such a problem, with running time O(n+poly(log n, 1/ε)), where poly(log n, 1/ε) is a polynomial of constant degree of log n and 1/ε (the power of the polynomial is a function of d… CONTINUE READING
