title = "Computing the geodesic centers of a polygonal domain",

abstract = "We present an algorithm that computes the geodesic center of a given polygonal domain. The running time of our algorithm is O(n12+ϵ) for any ϵ>0, where n is the number of corners of the input polygonal domain. Prior to our work, only the very special case where a simple polygon is given as input has been intensively studied in the 1980s, and an O(nlogn)-time algorithm is known by Pollack et al. Our algorithm is the first one that can handle general polygonal domains having one or more polygonal holes.",
