Given a sequence of n points that form the vertices of a simple polygon, we show that determining a closest pair requires R(n log n) time in the algebraic decision tree model. Together with the well-known O(n log n) upper bound for finding a closest pair, this settles an open problem of Lee and Preparata. We also extend this O(n… CONTINUE READING
