CGAL 5.6.1 - 2D Boolean Operations on Nef Polygons Embedded on the Sphere
CGAL::Nef_polyhedron_S2< Traits >::SHalfloop Class Reference

#include <CGAL/Nef_polyhedron_S2.h>


A sloop is a great circle on a sphere.

A shalfloop is an oriented sloop. It is always paired with a shalfloop whose supporting Sphere_circle is pointing in the opposite direction. The twin() member function returns this shalfloop of opposite orientation. Each Nef_polyhedron_S2 can only have one sloop (resp. two shalfloops).

The figure below depicts the relationship between a shalfloop and sfaces on a sphere map.

Incidences of an SHalfloop

There is no need for a user to create a SHalfloop explicitly. The class Nef_polyhedron_S2<Traits> manages the needed shalfloops internally.
