 CGAL 4.14 - 2D Boolean Operations on Nef Polygons Embedded on the Sphere
CGAL::Nef_polyhedron_S2< Traits >::Sphere_segment Class Reference

#include <CGAL/Nef_polyhedron_S2.h>

Definition

An object s of type Sphere_segment is a segment in the surface of a unit sphere that is part of a great circle trough the origin.

Sphere segments are represented by two sphere points $$p$$ and $$q$$ plus an oriented plane $$h$$ that contains $$p$$ and $$q$$. The plane determines the sphere segment as follows. Let $$c$$ be the circle in the intersection of $$h$$ and $$S_2$$. Then $$s$$ is that part of $$c$$ that is swept, when we rotate $$p$$ into $$q$$ in counterclockwise rotation around the normal vector of $$h$$ as seen from the positive halfspace.

Creation

Sphere_segment ()
creates some sphere segment.

Sphere_segment (const Sphere_point &p1, const Sphere_point &p2, bool shorter_arc=true)
creates a spherical segment spanning the shorter arc from p1 to p2 if shorter_arc == true. More...

Sphere_segment (const Sphere_point &p1, const Sphere_point &p2, const Sphere_circle &c)
creates a spherical segment spanning the arc from p1 to p2 as part of the oriented circle c (p1 == p2 or p1 == p2.opposite() are possible.) More...

Sphere_segment (const Sphere_circle &c1, const Sphere_circle &c2)
creates the spherical segment as part of c1 that is part of the halfsphere left of the oriented circle c2. More...

Operations

const Sphere_pointsource ()
the source point of s.

const Sphere_pointtarget ()
the target point of s.

const Sphere_circlesphere_circle ()
the great circle supporting s.

Sphere_segment opposite ()
returns the sperical segment oriented from target() to source() with the same point set as s.

Sphere_segment complement ()
returns the sperical segment oriented from target() to source() with the point set completing s to a full circle.

bool is_short ()
a segment is short iff it is shorter than a half-circle.

bool is_long ()
a segment is long iff it is longer than a half-circle.

bool is_degenerate ()
return true iff s is degenerate, i.e. source and target are the same.

bool is_halfcircle ()
return true iff s is a perfect half-circle, i.e. source().antipode == target().

bool has_on (const Sphere_point &p)
return true iff s contains p.

bool has_in_relative_interior (const Sphere_point &p)
return true iff s contains p in its relative interior.

◆ Sphere_segment() [1/3]

template<typename Traits >
 CGAL::Nef_polyhedron_S2< Traits >::Sphere_segment::Sphere_segment ( const Sphere_point & p1, const Sphere_point & p2, bool shorter_arc = true )

creates a spherical segment spanning the shorter arc from p1 to p2 if shorter_arc == true.

Otherwise the longer arc is created.

Precondition
p1 != p2 and p1 != p2.opposite().

◆ Sphere_segment() [2/3]

template<typename Traits >
 CGAL::Nef_polyhedron_S2< Traits >::Sphere_segment::Sphere_segment ( const Sphere_point & p1, const Sphere_point & p2, const Sphere_circle & c )

creates a spherical segment spanning the arc from p1 to p2 as part of the oriented circle c (p1 == p2 or p1 == p2.opposite() are possible.)

Precondition
p1 and p2 are contained in c.

◆ Sphere_segment() [3/3]

template<typename Traits >
 CGAL::Nef_polyhedron_S2< Traits >::Sphere_segment::Sphere_segment ( const Sphere_circle & c1, const Sphere_circle & c2 )

creates the spherical segment as part of c1 that is part of the halfsphere left of the oriented circle c2.

Precondition
c1 != c2 as unoriented circles.
