This worksheet introduces the reader to a simple (non-optimal) algorithm for determining the Skeleton/Medial Axis of a convex polygon. The skeleton is the locus of the centers of all maximal discs within the polygon. We use the graph structure available in Maple's networks package to manage the information.
