definition

Branch of computer science devoted to the study of algorithms which can be stated in terms of geometry. The main branches of computational geometry are:
• *Combinatorial computational geometry*, also called *algorithmic geometry*, which deals with geometric objects as discrete entities.
• *Numerical computational geometry*, also called *machine geometry*, *computer-aided geometric design* (CAGD), or *geometric modeling*, which deals primarily with representing real-world objects in forms suitable for computer computations in CAD/CAM systems. This branch may be seen as a further development of descriptive geometry and is often considered a branch of computer graphics or CAD. The term "computational geometry" in this meaning has been in use since 1971.
