computational geometry


I need a way to determine the intersection of polygons in a plane.

In particular, I am representing data as a complex hull surrounding 2
dimensional points in the xy plane.
Multiple polygons representing different experiments are represented in the
same plane.

I need to determine if there exists a polygon which is isolated from all
other polygons in the plane and is located in the upper right quadrant of
the plane.

This particular polygon would represent the best of the best  in the series.
It has no intersections with any other polygons and is located in the upper
right quadrant.

I have had serveral ideas on how to do this, but none are clean and elegant.
Anyone have any good ideas?

Thanks,

Charles A. Judge MD
