CGAL 5.3  3D Triangulations

The concept DelaunayTriangulationTraits_3
is the first template parameter of the class Delaunay_triangulation_3
. It defines the geometric objects (points, segments...) forming the triangulation together with a few geometric predicates and constructions on these objects.
CGAL::Exact_predicates_inexact_constructions_kernel
(recommended)
CGAL::Exact_predicates_exact_constructions_kernel
(recommended for Voronoi)
In addition to the requirements described for the traits class of CGAL::Triangulation_3
, the geometric traits class of a Delaunay triangulation must fulfill the following requirements:

typedef unspecified_type  Side_of_bounded_sphere_3

In addition, only when the dual operations are used, the traits class must provide the following constructor objects:  
typedef unspecified_type  Construct_circumcenter_3

Operations  
The following functions give access to the predicate and construction objects:  
Coplanar_side_of_bounded_circle_3  coplanar_side_of_bounded_circle_3_object () 
Side_of_oriented_sphere_3  side_of_oriented_sphere_3_object () 
When using the  
Compare_distance_3  compare_distance_3_object () 
The following functions must be provided only if the methods of  
Construct_circumcenter_3  construct_circumcenter_3_object () 
Construct_object_3  construct_object_3_object ()

A predicate object that must provide the function operator.
Comparison_result operator()(Point p, Point q, Point r)

policy or the nearest_vertex
function.

Point_3 operator()(Point_3 p, Point_3 q, Point_3 r, Point_3 s)
,
which constructs the circumcenter of four points.
p
, q

and s
must be non coplanar.It must also provide the function operator
Point_3 operator()(Point_3 p, Point_3 q, Point_3 r)
,
which constructs the circumcenter of three points.
p
, q
and r
must be non collinear. A constructor object that must provide the function operator.
Line_3 operator()(Point_3 p1, Point_3 p2, Point_3 p3)
,
which constructs the line which is at the same distance from the three points.
p1
, p2
and p3
must be non collinear. A constructor object that must provide the function operators.
Object_3 operator()(Point_3 p)
,
Object_3 operator()(Segment_3 s)
and
Object_3 operator()(Ray_3 r)

,
which constructs the ray starting at p
with direction given by l
.
A predicate object that must provide the function operator.
Bounded_side operator()(Point p, Point q, Point r, Point s)
,
which determines the bounded side of the circle defined by p

, and r
on which s
lies.
p
, q
, r
, and s
are coplanar and p
, q
, and r
are not collinear. A predicate object that must provide the function operators.

,
which returns the position of the point t
relative to the sphere that has pq

which returns the position of the point t
relative to the sphere passing through p, q
, and r
and whose center is in the plane defined by these three points.
A predicate object that must provide the function operator.
Oriented_side operator()(Point p, Point q, Point r, Point s, Point t)
,
which determines on which side of the oriented sphere circumscribing p, q, r, s
