We propose a simple variant of kd-trees, called rankbased kd-trees, for sets of points in Rd. We show that a rank-based kd-tree, like an ordinary kd-tree, supports range search queries in O(n1-1/d + k) time, where k is the output size. The main advantage of rank-based kd-trees is that they can be efficiently kinetized: the KDS processes O(n2) events in the worst case, assuming that the points follow constantdegree algebraic trajectories, each event can be handled in O(log n) time, and each point is involved in O(1) certificates.
