Finding minimum area simple pentagons

Given a set P of n points in the plane, we want to find a simple, not necessarily convex, pentagon Q with vertices in P of minimum area. We present an algorithm for solving this problem in time O(nT(n)) and space O(n) , where T(n) is the number of empty triangles in the set.
