# Resources on Computational Geometry

## Computational Geometry Resources

Computational geometry is a special branch of computer science that is devoted entirely to the study of how algorithms can relate to the subject of geometry. The branch came into being almost exclusively because of the progression of computer graphics and similar problems like computer-aided design or manufacturing. It allows computers to be used as ways of designing or improving mathematical formulas and even allows people to do things like create 3D models of math problems. Here are some useful resources on computational geometry.
