Asmus Schmidt has developed a new algorithm for generating Gaussian rational approximations to complex irrational numbers. The method is based on the structure of a certain collection of planar sets. Schmidt suggested an inductive proof for the structure theorem without publishing the details. The present paper presents a proof, which is not inductive in character.
