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 by induction ... has been processed, 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 because the algorithm maintains ... 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)

    In order to get to East Russet you take the Vermont Central as far as Twitchell’s Falls and change there for Torpid River Junction, where a spur line takes you right into Gormley. At Gormley you are met by a buckboard which takes you back to Torpid River Junction again.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
