This paper describes systolic algorithms for a number of geometric problems. For the sake of realism we restrict our investigation to one-dimensional arrays whose communication links with the outside are located at the end cells. Implementations yielding maximal throughput are given for solving dynamic versions of convex hull, inclusion, range and intersection search, planar point location, intersection, triangulation, and closest-point problems.
