What algorithm does the function convhull use?

Asked by Khue on 21 Mar 2014
Latest activity Commented on by Khue on 23 Mar 2014

Hi everybody,

The convhull function is used for computing the convex hull of a set of 2D or 3D points. In the reference page it is not indicated which algorithm was implemented. Does anybody have some information on that? (I'm using this function for my project and need to say some words about the algorithm.)

Thank you in advance for your help.

It is not clear if you are just trying to site the algorithm you used.

This shows how you can site MATLAB. This might be enough?

Thanks Doug Hull. But I have to describe the algorithm, not just citing Matlab.
