Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/circum.R

Description

This function returns the circumcircle of a triangle.

Usage

1
circum(x, y)

Arguments

x

Vector of three elements, giving the x coordinatres of the triangle nodes.

y

Vector of three elements, giving the y coordinatres of the triangle nodes.

Details

This is an interface to the Fortran function CIRCUM found in TRIPACK.

Value

x

'x' coordinate of center

y

'y' coordinate of center

radius

circumcircle radius

signed.area

signed area of riangle (positive iff nodes are numbered counter clock wise)

aspect.ratio

ratio "radius of inscribed circle"/"radius of circumcircle", varies between 0 and 0.5

0 means collinear points, 0.5 equilateral trangle.

Note

This function is mainly intended to be used by circumcircle.
