Bentley–Ottmann Algorithm - Analysis
... The algorithm processes one event per segment endpoint or crossing point, in the sorted order of the x-coordinates of these points, as may be proven ... the next event (if it is a crossing point) must be a crossing of two segments that are adjacent in the ordering of the segments represented by T, and ... As a consequence, it correctly finds all crossings of input line segments, the problem it was designed to solve ...

Famous quotes containing the words segments, input and/or line:

    It is not, truly speaking, the labour that is divided; but the men: divided into mere segments of men—broken into small fragments and crumbs of life, so that all the little piece of intelligence that is left in a man is not enough to make a pin, or a nail, but exhausts itself in making the point of a pin or the head of a nail.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    Celebrity is a mask that eats into the face. As soon as one is aware of being “somebody,” to be watched and listened to with extra interest, input ceases, and the performer goes blind and deaf in his overanimation. One can either see or be seen.
    John Updike (b. 1932)

    As for conforming outwardly, and living your own life inwardly, I do not think much of that. Let not your right hand know what your left hand does in that line of business. It will prove a failure.... It is a greater strain than any soul can long endure. When you get God to pulling one way, and the devil the other, each having his feet well braced,—to say nothing of the conscience sawing transversely,—almost any timber will give way.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
