I didn't read this very carefully, caveat emptor.

Just a thought of mine that popped up: This reminds me of branch-and-bound problems because time could be treated as a dimension and polygons are linearly bound spaces in the sense of branch-and-bound.

The blog talks about many interesting mathematical problems. One strange thing is that there is gap of about four year between his most current entry (jan 2020) and the previous one (oct 2016).

Thanks for the kind words. I was actually looking for a better blogging platform as things weren't really discoverable on svbtle and then kind of forgot about it. But I've resumed it this year.
