Does triangle overlap convex hull of points?

TriangleInHull(triangles, coordinates, buffer)

## Arguments

triangles

Three-row matrix as produced by TriangleCentres().

coordinates

A matrix with two or three rows specifying the coordinates of points in x, y or a, b, c format.

buffer

Include triangles whose centres lie within buffer triangles widths (i.e. edge lengths) of the convex hull.

## Value

TriangleInHull() returns a list with the elements:

• $inside: vector specifying whether each of a set of triangles produced by TriangleCentres() overlaps the convex hull of points specified by coordinates. • $hull: Coordinates of convex hull of coordinates, after expansion to cover overlapping triangles.

Other tiling functions: Polygon-Geometry, TriangleCentres()

## Examples

set.seed(0)
nPts <- 50
a <- runif(nPts, 0.3, 0.7)
b <- 0.15 + runif(nPts, 0, 0.7 - a)
c <- 1 - a - b
coordinates <- rbind(a, b, c)
