Bounding General Shapes with Polygons, Especially Concave

  1. Apr 3, 2014 #1
    I apologize if this is the wrong forum but I need access to mathematicians who know what's happening with polygonal math.

    I created an unproven algorithm (or heuristic) back in 1999/2000 for bounding shapes with polygons. It was interesting because it was fast, general for polygons of any number of sides, and especially that it worked for concave polygons.

    I am trying to figure out if this is still a needed solution for the world. I wonder if my employer of the time may have sold it. If not, I am not sure they own the rights to it anyway. If they sold it, I want to see if a lawsuit is worthwhile.
