Find extreme points

Description

Find extreme points of a polytope given by a set of linear constraints along each dimension.

Usage

1
findExtremePoints(constr, homogeneous=FALSE)

Arguments

constr

Constraint definition

homogeneous

Whether constr is given in homogeneous coordinate representation

Details

See har for a description of the constraint definition and the homogeneous coordinate representation.

For n-dimensional coordinate vectors, solves 2n LPs to find the extreme points along each dimension.

Value

A matrix, in which each row is a coordinate vector in the appropriate coordinate system.
