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
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.
