CGAL 5.1 - dD Geometry Kernel
CGAL::Homogeneous_d< RingNumberType > Class Template Reference

#include <CGAL/Homogeneous_d.h>

## Definition

A model for a Kernel_d (and even KernelWithLifting_d) using homogeneous coordinates to represent the geometric objects.

In order for Homogeneous to model Euclidean geometry in $$E^d$$, for some mathematical ring $$E$$ (e.g., the integers $$\mathbb{Z}$$ or the rationals $$\mathbb{Q}$$), the template parameter RT must model the mathematical ring $$E$$. That is, the ring operations on this number type must compute the mathematically correct results. If the number type provided as a model for RingNumberType is only an approximation of a ring (such as the built-in type double), then the geometry provided by the kernel is only an approximation of Euclidean geometry.
