Detection of near earth objects (NEOs), especially asteroids, is important for the protection of our planet; also it becomes a challenging problem for computation due to the high combinatorics of NEOs. An algorithm is developed with Professor Nodari Sitchinava using computational geometry to efficiently and accurately determine probable asteroids.
