Sort array of 3D points to maximize number of tetrahedra in the array

Let $P$ be a indexable set(array) of points in $\mathbb{R}^3$ s.t. $P = \{p_0,p_1,p_2,...,p_n\}, p_i \in\mathbb{R}^3$. I want to sort $P$ so that every 4 consecutive points forms a non-coplanar ...

How does Bowyer-Watson algorithm for Delaunay triangulation run in $O(n^2)$ but runs over all the simplexes?

The Bowyer-Watson algorithm for Delaunay triangulation is known to run in $O(n^2)$ according to the authors, where $n$ is the number of data points in $\mathbb R^d$. In addition, the algorithm (for ...

Better way to decide if a set is a pure simplicial complex

Setup I am trying to write a function that determines if a set of vertices, edges and faces is a pure simplicial complex. A pure simplicial complex is a set where all facets have the same degree, a ...

In a LP problem Ax = b, how to solve for A instead of x?

I have a multi-objective linear programming problem of the form Ax = b, where A is a matrix and x and b are vectors. x is known, and I'm looking to minimise each row of b by solving for A. Constraints ...

How to uniformly sample a sorted simplex

I am looking for an algorithm to uniformly generate a descending array of N random numbers, such that the sum of the N numbers is 1, and all numbers lie within 0 and 1. For example, N=3, the random ...
