Abstract

An algorithm is presented for computing the minimum covering sphere for a set of n points in d-dimensional space (0 < n, d < oo). The steps of the simple geometric construction can readily be programmed for a computer. In the worst case, with all the points near the sphere surface, the expected computing time is estimated to be 0(nd2.3).
