Decomposition and Intersection of Simple Splinegons
A splinegon is a polygon whose edges have been replaced by "well-behaved" curves. We show how to decompose a simple splinegon into a union of monotone pieces and into a union of differences of unions of convex pieces. We also show how to use a fast triangulation algorithm to test whether two given simple
splinegons intersect. We conclude with examples of splinegons that make the extension of algorithms from polygons to splinegons difficult.
