Unformatted text preview: AMS 345/CSE 355 (Fall, 2010) Joe Mitchell COMPUTATIONAL GEOMETRY Homework Set # 3 – Solution Notes (1). Give an example of a monotone simple polygon for which the set of directions d with respect to which it is monotone consists of at least two distinct double-cones of directions. (A double-cone of directions consists of an interval of angles, and the interval of their opposites; e.g., a double- cone may consist of angles (in degrees) in the intervals (10,45) and (190, 225), or of angles in the intervals (-10,10) and (170,190).) Show the set of directions with respect to which your polygon is monotone (e.g., highlight arcs on a circle to show the set of directions/angles). There are many possible examples. One class of examples is based on taking a convex polygon and “denting inward” each of its sides. See the example below. Another example comes from a “cross” or “plus” sign, “+”, for which the set of directions with respect to which the (rectilinear) polygon is monotone consists of just 0 (=180) degrees and 90 (=270) degrees (two “point” intervals).polygon is monotone consists of just 0 (=180) degrees and 90 (=270) degrees (two “point” intervals)....
