Hi Giuliano,

> Ah, I missed that. If it's a new algorithm, maybe try and get it published
into a journal? Then other math types who are into that sort of thing (and
more importantly, understand it! :-) ) can give you feedback on it. As you
may know, there's quite a bit of literature on
generalisation/simplification algorithms, including for RDP -
http://scholar.google.co.uk/scholar?q=rdp+simplification - you may find
some of that interesting reading.
