Abstract in LaTeX format:
We give an algorithm that maintains an approximation of the width of a
set of $n$ points in the plane in $O(\alpha\log n)$ amortized
time, if only insertions or only deletions are performed.
The data structure allows for reporting the approximation in
$O(\alpha\log n\log\log n)$ time.
$\alpha$ is a parameter that expresses the quality of the approximation.
Our data structure is based on a method of Janardan that maintains an
approximation of the width under insertions and deletions using
$O(\alpha\log^2 n)$ time for the width query and the updates.
