Dear all,
excuse me if this question has been asked before (I actually did not find a searchable interface for the sig-geo archives).
Is there an R function that computes the largest rectangle that "fits" into a given polygon ?
This is a bit the dual of the (much easier) problem of computing the MBR (minimum bounding rectangle)

Thanks !
