Abstract in LaTeX format:
We report on the use of the generic programming paradigm in the computational
geometry algorithms library CGAL. The parameterization of
the geometric algorithms in CGAL enhances flexibility and adaptability and
opens an easy way for abolishing precision and robustness problems by exact but
nevertheless efficient computation. Furthermore we discuss circulators, which
are an extension of the iterator concept to circular structures. Such structures
arise frequently in geometric computing.
