Given a point set P and a class C of geometric objects, GC(P) is a geometric graph with vertex set P such that any two vertices p and q are adjacent if and only if there is some C ∈ C containing both p and q but no other points from P. We study G (P) graphs where is the class of downward equilateral triangles (ie. equilateral triangles with one of their(More)
Given an edge-weighted graph G = (V, E) and a subset R of V , a Steiner tree of G is a tree which spans all the vertices in R. A full Steiner tree is a Steiner tree which has all the vertices of R as its leaves. The full Steiner tree problem is to find a full Steiner tree of G with minimum weight. In this paper we present a 20-approximation algorithm for(More)
Let P and S be two disjoint sets of n and m points in the plane, respectively. We consider the problem of computing a Steiner tree whose Steiner vertices belong to S, in which each point of P is a leaf, and whose longest edge length is minimum. We present an algorithm that computes such a tree in O((n + m) log m) time, improving the previously best result(More)
We consider an extension of the triangular-distance Delaunay graphs (TD-Delaunay) on a set P of points in general position in the plane. In TD-Delaunay, the convex distance is defined by a fixed-oriented equilateral triangle , and there is an edge between two points in P if and only if there is an empty homothet of having the two points on its boundary. We(More)
Let S be a finite set of points in the interior of a simple polygon P. A geodesic graph, G P (S, E), is a graph with vertex set S and edge set E such that each edge (a, b) ∈ E is the shortest geodesic path between a and b inside P. G P is said to be plane if the edges in E do not cross. If the points in S are colored, then G P is said to be properly colored(More)
Let P be a set of n points in general position in the plane which is partitioned into color classes. P is said to be color-balanced if the number of points of each color is at most n/2. Given a color-balanced point set P , a balanced cut is a line which partitions P into two color-balanced point sets, each of size at most 2n/3+1. A colored matching of P is(More)
Let S be a set of n points in the plane that is in convex position. For a real number t > 1, we say that a point p in S is t-good if for every point q of S, the shortest-path distance between p and q along the boundary of the convex hull of S is at most t times the Euclidean distance between p and q. We prove that any point that is part of (an approximation(More)
A bottleneck plane perfect matching of a set of n points in R 2 is defined to be a perfect non-crossing matching that minimizes the length of the longest edge; the length of this longest edge is known as bottleneck. The problem of computing a bottleneck plane perfect matching has been proved to be NP-hard. We present an algorithm that computes a bottleneck(More)
