Algorithms

The Elastic Windows implementation includes algorithms for window management capable of handling hierarchies of windows in an efficient manner by recursive propagation of the operations. Layout algorithms allow partitioning of the layout in arbitrary horizontal and vertical tilings, providing flexibility and controllability of the arrangement of windows. Elastic layout dynamics algorithms allow efficient restructuring of the layout rapidly eliminating disorientation.
