 Describes functions for computing all the extrema between two 2D curves. An ExtremaCurveCurve algorithm minimizes or maximizes the distance between a point on the first curve and a point on the second curve. Thus, it computes the start point and end point of perpendiculars common to the two curves (an intersection point is not an extremum except where the two curves are tangential at this point). Solutions consist of pairs of points, and an extremum is considered to be a segment joining the two points of a solution. An ExtremaCurveCurve object provides a framework for: More...
