CGAL 5.1.3  2D Polyline Simplification

#include <CGAL/Polyline_simplification_2/Hybrid_squared_distance_cost.h>
This class is a cost function which calculates the cost as the square of the distance between the original and simplified polylines, possibly scaled based on a factor.

Compute the hybrid squared distance cost.
Given a vertex in constraint iterator vicq
computes vicp=std::prev(vicq)
and vicr=std::next(vicq)
, returns the maximal square distance between each point along the original subpolyline, between vicp
and vicr
, and the straight line segment from *vicp>point() to *vicr>point()
divided by the smallest of
