Computational Geometry

Originally, Computational Geometry was defined as the study of algorithms for solving geometric problems. Since then it has broadened its scope, and now means the study of geometric problems from a computational point of view, including also computational convexity, computational topology, and questions involving the combinatorial complexity of arrangements and polyhedra.
