ABSTRACT

An optimal algorithm for computing hyperplane cuttings is given. It results in a new kind of cutting, which enjoys all the properties of the previous ones and, in addition, can be refined by composition. An optimal algorithm for computing the convex hull of a finite point set in any fixed dimension is also given.
