Cuboid-Sphere Collision Detection

The present program tests the run-time efficiency of algorithms for collision detection of one sphere and one randomly oriented cuboid. The acceptance rate, i.e. the number of non-overlapping configurations, the radius of the sphere and a set of cuboids with different thickness T, length L and width W are defined in input. The program generates a set number of configurations choosing a random point inside a spherocuboid as the centre of the sphere. The spherocuboid is centred at the centre of the cuboid and has the same orientation of the cuboid.
