We characterize the planar straight line graphs (Pslgs) that can be augmented to 3-connected and 3-edge-connected Pslgs, respectively. We show that if a Pslg with n vertices can be augmented to a 3-edge-connected Pslg, then at most 2n−2 new edges are always sufficient and sometimes necessary for the augmentation. If the input Pslg is, in addition, already(More)
It is shown that if a planar straight line graph (PSLG) with n vertices in general position in the plane can be augmented to a 3-edge-connected PSLG, then 2n−2 new edges are enough for the augmentation. This bound is tight: there are PSLGs with n ≥ 4 vertices such that any augmentation to a 3-edge-connected PSLG requires 2n − 2 new edges.
