Title: A Note on Rabin's Nearest-Neighbor Algorithm
Authors: Fortune, Steven
Hopcroft, John E.
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Apr-1978
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: Rabin has proposed a probabilistic algorithm for finding the closest pair of a set of points in Euclidean space. His algorithm is asymtomatically linear whereas the best of the known deterministic algorithms take order $n \log n$ time. We show that at least part of the speed up is due to the model rather than the probabilistic nature of the algorithm.
