For a point p and a Polyhedron P or a Cone C, proximum computes the point in P or C with minimal euclidean distance to p.
i1 : P = crossPolytope 3 o1 = P o1 : Polyhedron |
i2 : p = matrix {{1},{2},{3}} o2 = | 1 | | 2 | | 3 | 3 1 o2 : Matrix ZZ <--- ZZ |
i3 : q = proximum(p,P) o3 = | 0 | | 0 | | 1 | 3 1 o3 : Matrix QQ <--- QQ |
The object proximum is a method function.
