    In this paper efficient algorithms for counting intersections in a collection of circles or circular arcs are presented. An algorithm for counting intersections in a collection of n circles is presented whose running time is O(n3/2+ε), for any ε>0 is presented. Using this algorithm as a subroutine, it is shown that the intersections in a set of n circular arcs can also be counted in time O(n3/2+ε). If all arcs have the same radius, the running time can be improved to O(n4/3+ε), for any ε>0.
