Description

Convex Hull of a pointset in plane.

Usage

1

Arguments

x

The data as a matrix, data frame or list. If it is a matrix or data frame, then each row is viewed as one bivariate observation. If it is a list, all components must be numerical vectors of equal length (coordinates of observations).

y

The data as a matrix, data frame or list. If it is a matrix or data frame, then each row is viewed as one bivariate observation. If it is a list, all components must be numerical vectors of equal length (coordinates of observations).

...

For future use.

Details

In dimension 2, calculates Convex Hull of a pointset.

Value

Returns with respect to data set, ordered set of points on the convex hull.
