### Furthest point from nearby objects, packing a sphere on a region interior

Suppose I have a boundary $\partial\Omega$ of a region $\Omega\subset \mathbb{R}^3$ and within this are some compact objects $B_i\subset\Omega$. They could be points, lines, polygons, complex 3D ...

### Define a Region where a disequation is satisfied for all values of a variable

I'm having a problem with Mathematica. I have a large and complicate system of 3 inequalities in 3 variables, let's call them x,y,z. Now, I can't use reduce to solve it exactly. There is a way to ...

### Minimization problem and Voronoi Mesh

I have a random convex mesh $Q$, made of $n$ polygons, and I want to test how close it is to a Voronoi tessellation. In other words, I'm looking for generators (seeds) $\{(x_i,y_i)\}_{1\leq i\leq n}$. ...

### Issue with NMaxValue Constrained to an ImplicitRegion

I am trying to find the maximum (and minimum) value of an interpolated function constrained to an ImplictRegion with a (partly) curved boundary. I have followed the documentation carefully and tried ...

### Maximizing over a 1D region

Why does the following not compute? MaxValue[-y^2, y ∈ Interval[{-1, 1}]] I expect it to compute the maximum value of the funtion over the interval from -1 to 1 ...

### NMinimize cannot be used within RegionPlot

My version of Mathematica (11.1) apparently cannot do NMinimize within RegionPlot. It did work before (!) my last software update. Here is an example from user GioMott having the same (unanswered) ...

### RegionPlot with FindMaximum

I don't understand why each time I'm launching this computation Mathematica buggs and I get a message from Windows that the Kernel stopped working... I'm trying to get a map of where the value of ...

### Finding the shortest distance of two points and an area

So I have a region defined by something like MeshRegion[{{0, 0}, {1, 1}, {2, 1/2}, {2, -1/2}}, {Line[{1, 2}], Line[{2, 3}], Line[{3, 4}], Line[{4, 1}]}], and two ...

### Optimization of a function over a geometric region

Say I have a function f[x,y,z], what is a good way to find its minimum or maximum value over a continuous region (e.g. a ...

### How to find alignments of interlocking shapes?

I'm searching for the ways to align interlocking shapes, that is, finding the locations and rotations that maximize the arc length at which they touch. For simplicity, I'm assuming 'shapes' are one ...

### Why does EvaluationMonitor in FindMaximum only work for some regions?

This has come about after trying to understand what was going on with this question about FindMaximum and regions. My first thought in that scenario was to set-up <...
