This application is based off the paper Geometric Separators and the Parabolic Lift by Don Sheehy. demonstrates usage of a new algorithm for finding a geometric separator for 2-D points.
The simple Processing program will allow you input a number of 2-D Euclidean points using a mouse and calculate the geometric separator. Tentatively, you will also be able to provide a file of predefined points (e.g. .csv format).
Click the mouse anywhere on the canvas to create a new input point. When you have completed your input, either press 'Reset.' to clear it or 'Calculate.' to find the separator.
The program will visualize several components of the algorthm:
- Highlights the estimated centerpoint for your input.
- Shows the separator in relation to your input.
- Outputs the numerical information associated with the above.
- Perhaps more...
