Let
*P*be a simple polygon with*m*vertices,*k*of which are reflex, and which contains*r*red points and*b*blue points in its interior. Let*n*=*m*+*r*+*b*. A*ham-sandwich geodesic*is a shortest path in*P*between any two points on the boundary of*P*that simultaneously bisects the red points and the blue points. We present an*O*(*n*log*k*)-time algorithm for finding a ham-sandwich geodesic. We also show that this algorithm is optimal in the algebraic computation tree model when parameterizing the running time with respect to*n*and*k*. **Comments**:- This paper is also available from the ACM Digital Library.
