Abstract

Consider an ordered point set $P = (p_1,\ldots,p_n)$, its order type (denoted by $\chi_P$) is a map which assigns to every triple of points a value in $\{+,-,0\}$ based on whether the points are collinear(0), oriented clockwise(-) or counter-clockwise(+). An abstract order type is a map $\chi : \left[\substack{n\\3}\right] \rightarrow
