CGAL::Polyline_simplification_2::Squared_distance_cost Class Reference

#include <CGAL/Polyline_simplification_2/Squared_distance_cost.h>

## Definition

This class is a cost function which calculates the cost as the square of the distance between the original and simplified polylines.

Is Model Of:

## ◆ operator()()

template<class CDT >
 boost::optional CGAL::Polyline_simplification_2::Squared_distance_cost::operator() ( const Constrained_triangulation_plus_2< CDT > & pct, typename Constrained_triangulation_plus_2< CDT >::Vertices_in_constraint_iterator vicq ) const

Given a vertex in constraint iterator vicq computes vicp=std::prev(vicq) and vicr=std::next(vicq),.

returns the maximum of the square distances between each point along the original subpolyline, between vicp and vicr, and the straight line segment from *vicp->point() to *vicr->point().

Template Parameters
 CDT must be CGAL::Constrained_Delaunay_triangulation_2 with a vertex type that is model of PolylineSimplificationVertexBase_2.
