Four Soviets Walk the Dog: Improved Bounds for Computing the Fréchet Distance

Given two polygonal curves in the plane, there are many ways to define a notion of similarity between them. One popular measure is the Fréchet distance. Since it was proposed by Alt and Godau in 1992, many variants and extensions have been studied. Nonetheless, even more than 20 years later, the original \(O(n^2 \log n)\) algorithm by Alt and Godau for computing the Fréchet...

Computing the Fréchet Distance with a Retractable Leash

All known algorithms for the Fréchet distance between curves proceed in two steps: first, they construct an efficient oracle for the decision version; second, they use this oracle to find the optimum from a finite set of critical values. We present a novel approach that avoids the detour through the decision version. This gives the first quadratic time algorithm for the Fréchet...
