Description

A half-space H is given as a pair of a vector a\in R^d and a scalar z0\in R s.t.: a^Tx≤q z0. This function calls the Ali's version of the Varsi formula to compute a frustum of the simplex.

Usage

Arguments

a

A d-dimensional vector that defines the direction of the hyperplane.

z0

The scalar that defines the half-space.

Value

The percentage of the volume of the simplex that is contained in the intersection of a given half-space and the simplex.
