CGAL 5.3 - dD Geometry Kernel
CGAL::Cartesian_d< FieldNumberType > Class Template Reference

#include <CGAL/Cartesian_d.h>

## Definition

A model for Kernel_d (and even KernelWithLifting_d) that uses Cartesian coordinates to represent the geometric objects.

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