An Output-Sensitive Algorithm for Computing the Union of Cubes and Fat Boxes in 3D

pdf-format:


Abstract

Let C be a set of n axis-aligned cubes of arbitrary sizes in ℝ³. Let U be their union, and let κ be the number of vertices on ∂U; κ can vary between O(1) and O(n²). We show that U can be computed in O(n log³ n + κ) time if C is in general position. The algorithm also computes the union of a set of fat boxes (i.e., boxes with bounded aspect ratio) within the same time bound. If the cubes in C are congruent or have bounded depth, the running time improves to O(n log² n), and if both conditions hold, the running time improves to O(n log n).
