Compute the intersection of convex sets in Matlab

I'm aware of a Matlab function which take a set of point as an input and select the points which compose the convex hull. Exemples from Mathworks website : ...

Projecting onto convex shapes - best fit convex polygon

I am interested in studying a problem of the form $\min F(\Omega)$ where $\Omega$ varies in the class of convex, open sets in the plane. An idea is to deform $\Omega$ at each step using a steepest ...

Computing the (non-convex) boundary of a set of paths between two points

I have a set of paths between two fixed points (marked in red below). Each of these paths consists of an ordered series of $\{x, y\}$ points (marked in blue). I am trying to find the ordered set of ...

Extract 3D lower hull from convex hull

For my problem I need to extract the lower convex hull of a set of 3D points (X,Y,Z). In Matlab, one can find the convex hull using the convhull function as follows: K = convhull(X,Y,Z). Could ...

Extreme points from constraint expression of convex space

I'm looking for the extreme points of the convex set $S\subset [-1,1]^{n\times 3}$ with $r\in S$ such that \begin{equation} r_{i} \ge r_{k} \iff i\ge k, \end{equation} where the first inequality ...

Concave polygon 'hull' finding

I implemented an algorithm to find the alpha shape of a set of points. The alpha shape is a concave hull for a set of points, whose shape depends on a parameter alpha deciding which points make up the ...
I have troubles imagining how to compute a volume and centroid of an n-dimesional convex polytope. For a polygon (especially for convex polygon) the area and centroid are described in (wiki) by  A=...
Recently, I wrote an algorithm to obtain a delaunay triangulation of a random point set in $I=[-10,10]$x$[-10,10] \subset R^2$ by projecting these points onto the 3 dimensional paraboloid $z=x^2+y^2$, ...
