We consider the separability of two point sets inside a polygon by
means of chords or geodesic lines. Specifically, given a set of
red points and a set of blue points in the interior of a polygon,
we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence
of a chord and for the existence of a geodesic path that separate
the two sets; when they exist we also derive efficient algorithms
for their obtention. We also study the separation of the two
sets using the minimum number of pairwise non-crossing chords.
