Description

• 

The ComputationalGeometry package contains routines implementing computational geometry algorithms.

• 

The ComputationalGeometry package uses the Qhull library developed at http://www.qhull.org.

• 

Each command in the ComputationalGeometry package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the calling sequence.

• 

As the underlying implementation of the ComputationalGeometry package is a module, it is also possible to use the form ComputationalGeometry:-command to access a command from the package. For more information, see Module Members.
