Perhaps you could tell us what 'yN' is and what you consider "fast".
By "Set" or "set" do you mean 'std::set' or something else? Is your
question about C++ language or about a general programming technique?

How fast does it need to be?
How many times will the statement be calculated?
Is the program in a real-time scenario?
Why does it need to be done faster than the usual
distance formula?
