public class BoundingPolytope
A BoundingPolytope defines a polyhedral bounding region using the intersection of four or more half spaces. The region defined by a BoundingPolytope is always convex and must be closed.
Each plane in the BoundingPolytope specifies a halfspace defined by the equation:
Constructor Summary  

BoundingPolytope()
