miniball: Bindings to Miniball, a smallest enclosing ball library

[ gpl, library, math ] [ Propose Tags ]

Bindings to Miniball, a C++ library ( for computing the smallest enclosing ball of a set of points in Euclidean space.

The Miniball library itself is not included, as I consider it a dependency. It consists of only a header file, and can be retrieved from To build this package, simply have miniball.hpp in GCC's include path. The standard C++ library and GCC with C++ support are also needed.

Hackage probably fails to build the Haddock documentation since Miniball itself is missing. The documentation can be viewed at

Miniball itself is copyright 1999-2013, Bernd Gärtner.

The current version has only been tested with version 3.0 of Miniball.

Changes in version

  • Improve allocation before FFI call. Good speedup for short calls (factor 3 for 100000 points in R^3).


  • Numeric
    • Numeric.Miniball
