Interesting CS problem. Need help.
I am working on implementing the plane sweep algorithm to solve the closest points problem and it works, but about 10/1000 times I get the wrong answer. The instructions I'm following say to have an array of x coordinates sorted and use a TreeSet to sort the points inside the strip by their y coordinates. I'm getting errors when I try to add two points to the BST and they have the same Y coordinate. I've been hitting my head on the wall for a while now. Does anybody have any suggestions or hints?
