The existing literature gives efficient algorithms for mapping trees or less restrictively outerplanar graphs on a given set of points in a plane, so that the edges are drawn planar and as straight lines. We relax the latter requirement and allow very few bends on each edge while considering general plane graphs. Our results show two algorithms for mapping(More)
In this paper, we present boundary labeling, a new approach for labeling point sets with large labels. We first place disjoint labels around an axis-parallel rectangle that contains the points. Then we connect each label to its point such that no two connections intersect. Such an approach is common e.g. in technical drawings and medical atlases, but so far(More)
Two trees with the same number of leaves have to be embedded in two layers in the plane such that the leaves are aligned in two adjacent layers. Additional matching edges between the leaves give a one-to-one correspondence between pairs of leaves of the different trees. Do there exist two planar embeddings of the two trees that minimize the crossings of the(More)
We consider the problem of drawing a set of simple paths along the edges of an embedded underlying graph G = (V, E), so that the total number of crossings among pairs of paths is minimized. This problem arises when drawing metro maps, where the embedding of G depicts the structure of the underlying network, the nodes of G correspond to train stations, an(More)
We introduce the concept of subdivision drawings of hyper-graphs. In a subdivision drawing each vertex corresponds uniquely to a face of a planar subdivision and, for each hyperedge, the union of the faces corresponding to the vertices incident to that hyperedge is connected. Vertex-based Venn diagrams and concrete Euler diagrams are both subdivision(More)
A geometric simultaneous embedding of two graphs G1 = (V1, E1) and G2 = (V2, E2) with a bijective mapping of their vertex sets γ : V1 → V2 is a pair of planar straight-line drawings Γ1 of G1 and Γ2 of G2, such that each vertex v2 = γ(v1) is mapped in Γ2 to the same point where v1 is mapped in Γ1, where v1 ∈ V1 and v2 ∈ V2. In this paper we examine several(More)
Bipartite graphs are common in many complex systems as they describe a relationship between two different kinds of actors, e.g., genes and proteins, metabolites and enzymes, authors and articles, or products and consumers. A common approach to analyze them is to build a graph between the nodes on one side depending on their relationships with nodes on the(More)
