ConvexHullMedian

As of Version 10, all the functionality of the ComputationalGeometry package is built into the Wolfram System. »

ConvexHullMedian[{{x1,y1},,{xn,yn}}]

estimates the median to be the mean of the bivariate data points lying on the innermost layer of the convex layers of the data.

Details

  • To use ConvexHullMedian, you first need to load the Computational Geometry Package using Needs["ComputationalGeometry`"].
  • ConvexHullMedian repeatedly removes the convex hull from the data until three or fewer data points remain.
  • The option EstimateDOF->True may be used to include the number of points lying on the innermost convex layer. The default setting is False.
