First we load the `pcds`

package:

Recall that a Delaunay cell is an interval in 1D space, a triangle in 2D space, and a tetrahedron in 3D space.
*Extreme points* or *extrema* are defined in a local or restricted sense, e.g.,
points closest to the center in a vertex or edge region
or closest to the opposite edge in a vertex region, etc of a Delaunay cell.
Such points are usually the best candidates for the (minimum) dominating sets for PCDs.

First we define the same triangle \(T\) used in the previous sections

And we generate \(n=\) 10 uniform points in it
using the function `runif.tri`

.

Here an *extrema point* in each \(M\)-vertex region in a triangle \(T\), where \(M\) is a center,
is the point in the given data set, \(\mathcal{X}_n\) closest to the opposite edge.
That is, for the triangle \(T(A,B,C)\), if the \(M\)-vertex region for vertex \(A\) is \(V(A)\),
then the opposite edge is edge \(BC\), and closest point
in \(\mathcal X_n \cap V(A)\) to edge \(BC\) is found (if there are no data points in \(V(A)\),
the function returns `NA`

for the vertex region \(V(A)\)).
These extrema are used to find the minimum dominating set and hence the domination number of the PE-PCD,
since a subset (possibly all) of this type of extrema points constitutes a minimum dominating set
(see Ceyhan and Priebe (2007), Ceyhan and Priebe (2005), and Ceyhan (2011) for more details).

With `M=CC`

(i.e., when the center is the circumcenter),
the extrema point here is the closest \(\mathcal{X}\) point in CC-vertex
region to the opposite edge, and is found by the function `cl2edgesCCvert.reg`

which is an object of class `Extrema`

and has arguments `Xp,tri`

where

`Xp`

, a set of 2D points representing the set of data points and`tri`

, a \(3 \times 2\) matrix with each row representing a vertex of the triangle.

Its `call`

(with `Ext`

in the below script) just returns the type of the extrema.
Its `summary`

returns the type of the extrema, the extrema points,
distances between the edges and the closest points to the edges in CC-vertex regions,
vertices of the support of the data points.
The `plot`

function (or `plot.Extrema`

) would return
the plot of the triangle together with the CC-vertex regions and
the generated points with extrema being marked with red crosses.

With a general center `M`

in the interior of the triangle \(T\),
the extrema point here is the closest \(\mathcal{X}\) point in \(M\)-vertex
region to the opposite edge,
and is found by the function `cl2edgesMvert.reg`

which is an object of class `Extrema`

and has arguments `Xp,tri,M,alt`

where

`Xp,tri`

are as in`cl2edgesCCvert.reg`

.`M`

, a 2D point in Cartesian coordinates or a 3D point in barycentric coordinates which serves as a center in the interior of the triangle`tri`

or the circumcenter of`tri`

; which may be entered as “CC” as well;`alt`

, a logical argument for alternative method of finding the closest points to the edges, default`alt=FALSE`

. When`alt=FALSE`

, the function sequentially finds the vertex region of the data point and then the minimum distance to the opposite edge and the relevant extrema objects, and when`alt=TRUE`

, it first partitions the data set according which vertex regions they reside, and then finds the minimum distance to the opposite edge and the relevant extrema on each partition.

There is also the function `cl2edges.vert.reg.basic.tri`

which takes arguments `Xp,c1,c2,M`

and finds the closest points in a data set `Xp`

in the \(M\)-vertex regions to the corresponding (opposite) edges in the standard basic triangle, \(T_b\)
where the *standard basic triangle* is \(T_b=T((0,0),(1,0),(c_1,c_2))\)
with \(0 < c_1 \le 1/2\), \(c_2>0\),
and \((1-c_1)^2+c_2^2 \le 1\).

Here an *extrema point* in each CC-vertex region
is the point in the given data set, \(\mathcal{X}_n\) closest to the circumcenter (CC).
That is, for the triangle \(T(A,B,C)\), if the \(CC\)-vertex region is \(V(A)\),
the closest point in \(\mathcal X_n \cap V(A)\) to the circumcenter is found
(if there are no data points in \(V(A)\), the function returns `NA`

for the vertex region \(V(A)\)).

The description and summary of extrema points and their plot can be obtained using the function `cl2CCvert.reg`

We use the same interval \((a,b)=(0,10)\) as in the previous sections.

And we generate \(n_x=\) 10 uniform points in it by using the basic `R`

function `runif`

.

Here an *extrema point* in each \(M_c\)-vertex region, where \(M_c=a+c(b-a)\) for the interval \((a,b)\),
is the point in the given data set, \(\mathcal{X}_n\) closest to center \(M_c\).
For the interval \((a,b)\), if the \(M_c\)-vertex region is \(V(a)\),
the closest point in \(\mathcal X_n \cap V(a)\) to the center \(M_c\) is found.
That is, for the interval \((a,b)\),
the closest data point in \((M_c,b)\) to \(M_c\) and
closest data point in \((a,Mc)\) to \(M_c\) are found.
If there are no data points in \(V(A)\), the function returns `NA`

for the vertex region \(V(a)\).
These extrema are used in finding the minimum dominating set
and hence the domination number of the PE-PCDs in the 1D setting,
since a subset (possibly all) of these extrema constitutes a minimum dominating set
(see Priebe, DeVinney, and Marchette (2001), Ceyhan (2020), and Ceyhan (2008) for more details).

The description and summary of extrema points and their plot can be obtained using the function `cl2Mc.int`

which is an object of class `Extrema`

and takes arguments `Xp,int,c`

where

We illustrate the extrema for a tetrahedron which is obtained by slightly jittering the vertices of
the standard regular tetrahedron (for better visualization) and
generate \(n=20\) uniform \(\mathcal{X}\) points in it using the function `runif.tetra`

.

```
A<-c(0,0,0); B<-c(1,0,0); C<-c(1/2,sqrt(3)/2,0); D<-c(1/2,sqrt(3)/6,sqrt(6)/3)
set.seed(1)
tetra<-rbind(A,B,C,D)+matrix(runif(12,-.25,.25),ncol=3)
n<-10 #try also n<-20
Cent<-"CC" #try also "CM"
n<-10 #try also n<-20
Xp<-runif.tetra(n,tetra)$g #try also Xp<-cbind(runif(n),runif(n),runif(n))
```

Here an *extrema point* in each \(M\)-vertex region, where \(M\) is a center of the tetrahedron,
is the point in the given data set, \(\mathcal{X}_n\) closest to the opposite face.
That is, for the tetrahedron \(T(A,B,C,D)\), if the \(M\)-vertex region is \(V(A)\),
the opposite face is the triangular face \(T(B,C,D)\), and closest point
in \(\mathcal X_n \cap V(A)\) to face \(T(B,C,D)\) is found
(if there are no data points in \(V(A)\), the function returns `NA`

for the vertex region \(V(A)\)).

With `M=CC`

(i.e., when the center is the circumcenter), the extrema point here is the closest \(\mathcal{X}\) point in CC-vertex
region to the opposite face, and is found by the function `cl2faces.vert.reg.tetra`

which is an object of class `Extrema`

and takes arguments `Xp,th,M`

where

- `Xp1, a set of 3D points representing the set of data points.
- `th1, a \(4 \times 3\) matrix with each row representing a vertex of the tetrahedron.
`M1, the center to be used in the construction of the vertex regions in the tetrahedron,`

th`. Currently it only takes`

“CC”`for circumcenter and`

“CM”`for center of mass; default=`

“CM”`.

This function is the 3D version of the function `cl2edgesCCvert.reg`

Its `call`

, `summary`

and `plot`

are as in `cl2edgesCCvert.reg`

,
except in `summary`

distances between the faces and
the closest points to the faces in CC-vertex regions are provided.
