Let G be a connected plane geometric graph with n vertices. In this paper, we study bounds on the number of edges required to be added to G to obtain 2-vertex or 2-edge connected plane geometric graphs. In particular, we show that for G to become 2-edge connected, 2n 3 additional edges are required in some cases and that 6n 7 additional edges are always(More)
We consider combinatorial and computational issues that are related to the problem of moving coins from one configuration to another. Coins are defined as non-overlapping discs, and moves are defined as collision free translations, all in the Euclidean plane. We obtain combinatorial bounds on the number of moves that are necessary and/or sufficient to move(More)
Two non-crossing geometric graphs on the same set of points are compatible if their union is also non-crossing. In this paper, we prove that every graph G that has an outerplanar embedding admits a non-crossing perfect matching compatible with G. Moreover, for non-crossing geometric trees and simple polygons, we study bounds on the minimum number of edges(More)
1 Let P be a set of n points in the plane in general position. A 2 subset H of P consisting of k elements that are the vertices of a convex 3 polygon is called a k-hole of P , if there is no element of P in the interior 4 of its convex hull. A set B of points in the plane blocks the k-holes of 5 P if any k-hole of P contains at least one element of B in the(More)
