CSC 3102 Programming Assignment 3 Convex Hull Problem Due: November 20, Thursday (by 11:55 pm) Points: 5 plus a bonus of 3 Penalty: You will lose one point per delayed day Submit your work as instructed towards the end of this document. Contact TA Di Lin by e- mail to dlin4@lsu.edu or me by e-mail to karki@csc.lsu.edu for help. Objective: Implement an algorithm to find a convex hull for given sets of points on a plane. Background: The convex-hull problem is the problem of finding the smallest convex polygon (that is, convex hull) that contains a given set of n points in the plane. In the class, we have discussed two algorithms for solving the problem. The brute-force algorithm (section 3.3 of the text book and the lecture note) is based on the fact that a line segment connecting any two points of a given set of n points is a part of the convex hull’s boundary if and only if all the other points of the set lie on the same side of the straight line through these two points. This requires checking whether the expression (
