We can find no evidence of the methods proposed in the C[omputational ]G[eometry] literature actually being used, in spite of the fact they have been widely known for many years.- David Avis and Komei Fukuda
"Comments on Application Challenges to Computational Geometry"
[There was a] joke at one meeting a few years ago that first, people try to do pure theory. If there are no jobs there, they try computational geometry. Finally, only if necessary to avoid starving do they teach applications. However, this isn't a joke. This leads to bad computational geometry, and to worse applications.
