We present a 4-approximation algorithm for the problem of placing the fewest guards on a 1.5D terrain so that every point of the terrain is seen by at least one guard. This improves on the previous best approximation factor of 5 (see King in Proceedings of the 13th Latin American Symposium on Theoretical Informatics, pp. 629–640, 2006). Unlike most of the(More)
In the 1.5D terrain guarding problem, an x-monotone polygonal line is defined by k vertices and a G set of terrain points, i.e. guards, and a N set of terrain points which guards are to observe (guard). This involves a weighted version of the guarding problem where guards G have weights. The goal is to determine a minimum weight subset of G to cover all the(More)
