Abstract: We give a simple lazy randomized incremental algorithm to compute ≤klevels in arrangements of xmonotone Jordan curves in the plane, and in arrangements of planes in threedimensional space. If each pair of curves intersects in at most s points, the expected running time of the algorithm is O(k2λs(n/k) + min(λs(n) log2 n, k2λs(n/k) log n)). For the threedimensional case the expected running time is O(nk2 + min(n log3 n, nk2 log n)). The algorithm also works for computing the ≤klevel in a set of discs, with an expected running time of O(nk + min(n log2 n, nk log n)). Furthermore, we give a simple algorithm for computing the orderk Voronoi diagram of a set of n points in the plane that runs in expected time O(k(n  k) log n + n log3 n).
