Geometry library for matlab. Performs geometric computations on points, lines, circles, polygons...

polygonNormalAngle(points, ind)
function theta = polygonNormalAngle(points, ind)
%POLYGONNORMALANGLE Compute the normal angle at a vertex of the polygon
%
%   THETA = polygonNormalAngle(POLYGON, IND);
%   where POLYGON is a set of points, and IND is index of a point in
%   polygon. The function compute the angle of the normal cone localized at
%   this vertex.
%   If IND is a vector of indices, normal angle is computed for each vertex
%   specified by IND.
%
%   Example
%   % creates a simple polygon
%   poly = [0 0;0 1;-1 1;0 -1;1 0];
%   % compute normal angle at each vertex
%   theta = polygonNormalAngle(poly, 1:size(poly, 1));
%   % sum of all normal angle of a non-intersecting polygon equals 2xpi
%   % (can be -2xpi if polygon is oriented clockwise)
%   sum(theta)
