In-place algorithms for computing (Layers of) maxima. (English) Zbl 1184.68558
Summary: We describe space-efficient algorithms for solving problems related to finding maxima among points in two and three dimensions. Our algorithms run in optimal \(\mathcal{O}(n\log n)\) time and occupy only constant extra space in addition to the space needed for representing the input.
