### Abstract

We give a lower bound on the following problem, known as simplex range reporting: Given a collection P of n points in d-space and an arbitrary simplex q, find all the points in P ⊂ q. It is understood that P is fixed and can be preprocessed ahead of time, while q is a query that must be answered on-line. We consider data structures for this problem that can be modeled on a pointer machine and whose query time is bounded by O(n^{ε}+r), where r is the number of points to be reported and δ is an arbitrary fixed real. We prove that any such data structure of that form must occupy storage Π(n^{d}(^{l-δ)-e}), for any fixed epsi > 0. This lower bound is tight within a factor of n^{ε}.
