 CGAL 4.8.2 - 2D Segment Delaunay Graphs
SegmentDelaunayGraphDataStructure_2 Concept Reference

## Definition

The concept SegmentDelaunayGraphDataStructure_2 refines the concept ApolloniusGraphDataStructure_2. In addition it provides two methods for the merging of two vertices joined by an edge of the data structure, and the splitting of a vertex into two. The method that merges two vertices, called join_vertices() identifies the two vertices and deletes their common two faces. The method that splits a vertex, called split_vertex() introduces a new vertex that shares an edge and two faces with the old vertex (see figure below). Notice that the join_vertices() and split_vertex() operations are complementary, in the sense that one reverses the action of the other. Figure 46.1 The join and split operations. Left to right: The vertex v is split into $$v_1$$ and $$v_2$$. The faces $$f$$ and $$g$$ are inserted after $$f_1$$ and $$f_2$$, respectively, in the counter-clockwise sense. The vertices $$v_1$$, $$v_2$$ and the faces $$f$$ and $$g$$ are returned as a boost::tuple in that order. Right to left: The edge (f,i) is collapsed, and thus the vertices $$v_1$$ and $$v_2$$ are joined. The vertex v is returned.

We only describe the additional requirements with respect to the ApolloniusGraphDataStructure_2 concept.

## Member Function Documentation

 boost::tuples::tuple SegmentDelaunayGraphDataStructure_2::split_vertex ( Vertex_handle v, Face_handle f1, Face_handle f2 )

Splits the vertex v into two vertices v1 and v2.

The common faces f and g of v1 and v2 are created after (in the counter-clockwise sense) the faces f1 and f2. The 4-tuple (v1,v2,f,g) is returned (see Figure 46.1).
