Computing Instance-Optimal Kernels in Two Dimensions

LIPIcs-SoCG-2023-4.pdf (1 MB)


Let P be a set of n points in ℝ². For a parameter ε ∈ (0,1), a subset C ⊆ P is an ε-kernel of P if the projection of the convex hull of C approximates that of P within (1-ε)-factor in every direction. The set C is a weak ε-kernel of P if its directional width approximates that of P in every direction. Let ?_ε(P) (resp. ?^?_ε(P)) denote the minimum-size of an ε-kernel (resp. weak ε-kernel) of P. We present an O(n ?_ε(P)log n)-time algorithm for computing an ε-kernel of P of size ?_ε(P), and an O(n²log n)-time algorithm for computing a weak ε-kernel of P of size ?^?_ε(P). We also present a fast algorithm for the Hausdorff variant of this problem.
In addition, we introduce the notion of ε-core, a convex polygon lying inside ch(P), prove that it is a good approximation of the optimal ε-kernel, present an efficient algorithm for computing it, and use it to compute an ε-kernel of small size.
