Epsilon-nets for halfspaces revisited Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract: Given a set $ P $ of $ n $ points in $\mathbb {R}^ 3$, we show that, for any $\varepsilon> 0$, there exists an $\varepsilon $-net of $ P $ for halfspace ranges, of size $ O (1/\varepsilon) $. We give five proofs of this result, which are arguably simpler than previous proofs\cite {msw-hnlls-90, cv-iaags-07, pr-nepen-08}. We also consider several related variants of this result, including the case of points and pseudo-disks in the plane. Subjects: Computational Geometry (cs. CG) Cite as: arXiv: 1410.3154 [cs.
