It is not well documented. But recognising it should have been part of
the test ;)
Anyway, it's https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Algorithm_Implementation/Geometry/Convex_hull/Monotone_chain

I do not see how this affects the student's proposal but depending on
the quality of the applications
the number of selected students for Boost Geometry will be from zero to two.
