We investigated sets of conditions with respect to narrower drawing of tree-structured diagrams on an integral lattice. We found that under certain sets of conditions there are practical procedural algorithms for narrower drawing of tree-structured diagrams, while under other sets of conditions there are none. Based on our findings, we presented efficient(More)
