All of the code is available in my Github profile.
We are given an array of n points in the plane, and the problem is to find out the closest pair of points in the array. This problem arises in a number of applications. For example, in air-traffic control, you may want to monitor planes that come too close together, since this may indicate a possible collision. Recall the following formula for distance between two points p and q. We can calculate the smallest distance in O nLogn time using Divide and Conquer strategy.

DOI: Divide and Conquer is a well known algorithmic procedure for solving many kinds of problem. In this procedure, the problem is partitioned into two parts until the problem is trivially solvable. Finding the distance of the closest pair is an interesting topic in computer science. With divide and conquer algorithm we can solve closest pair problem.
We verify two related divide-and-conquer algorithms solving one of the fundamental problems in Computational Geometry, the Closest Pair of Points problem. We generate executable code which is empirically competitive with handwritten reference implementations. They also prove that this running time is optimal for a deterministic computation model. One year later, in , Bentley and Shamos [ 2 ] publish a, also optimal, divide-and-conquer algorithm to solve the Closest Pair problem that can be non-trivially extended to work in arbitrary dimensions. Since then the problem has been the focus of extensive research and a multitude of optimal algorithms have been published. In contrast to many publications and implementations we do not assume all points of Open image in new window to have unique Open image in new window -coordinates which causes some tricky complications.

GitHub is home to over 50 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together. P N sorted by x coordinate, and yP is P We start from a naive implementation of divide-and-conquer approach to the closest pair of points problem: Let us suppose that we have 2 lists of … rewritten program from previous. We will present a divide-and-conquer algorithm for the closest-pair problem in the plane, generalize it to k-space, and extend the method to other closest-point problems. The problem can be solved in O n log n time using the recursive divide and conquer approach, e. Merge and sort consists of spliting the points list in smaller lists, until we can have one element by list.
The closest pair of points problem or closest pair problem is a problem of computational geometry : given n points in metric space , find a pair of points with the smallest distance between them. The closest pair problem for points in the Euclidean plane  was among the first geometric problems that were treated at the origins of the systematic study of the computational complexity of geometric algorithms. A naive algorithm of finding distances between all pairs of points in a space of dimension d and selecting the minimum requires O n 2 time. It turns out that the problem may be solved in O n log n time in a Euclidean space or L p space of fixed dimension d. In the computational model that assumes that the floor function is computable in constant time the problem can be solved in O n log log n time. The closest pair of points can be computed in O n 2 time by performing a brute-force search.
In computer science , divide and conquer is an algorithm design paradigm. A divide-and-conquer algorithm recursively breaks down a problem into two or more sub-problems of the same or related type, until these become simple enough to be solved directly. The solutions to the sub-problems are then combined to give a solution to the original problem. The divide-and-conquer technique is the basis of efficient algorithms for many problems, such as sorting e.

Abstract This paper introduces an algorithm to solve the closest pair of points problem in a 2D plane based on dynamic warping. The algorithm computes all the distances between the set of points P x, y and a reference point R i, j , records all the result in a grid and finally determines the minimum distance using schematic steps. Results show that the algorithm of finding the closest pair of points has achieved less number of comparisons in determining the closest pair of points compared with the brute force and divide-and-conquer methods of the closest pair of points.
В самом низу она увидела слова: РАССКАЖИТЕ МИРУ О ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ СЕЙЧАС ВАС МОЖЕТ СПАСТИ ТОЛЬКО ПРАВДА Сьюзан похолодела. В АНБ сосредоточена самая секретная государственная информация: протоколы военной связи, разведданные, списки разведчиков в зарубежных странах, чертежи передовой военной техники, документация в цифровом формате, торговые соглашения, - и этот список нескончаем. - Танкадо не посмеет этого сделать! - воскликнула. - Уничтожить всю нашу секретную информацию? - Сьюзан не могла поверить, что Танкадо совершит нападение на главный банк данных АНБ. Она перечитала его послание.
Дрожащей рукой он дал команду вывести на экран последнее сообщение. ОБЪЕКТ: ДЭВИД БЕККЕР - ЛИКВИДИРОВАН Коммандер опустил голову. Его мечте не суждено сбыться. ГЛАВА 104 Сьюзан вышла из комнаты. ОБЪЕКТ: ДЭВИД БЕККЕР - ЛИКВИДИРОВАН Как во сне она направилась к главному выходу из шифровалки.
