The link center of a simple polygon P is the set of points x inside P at which the maximal link-distance from x to any other point in P is minimized, where the link distance between two points x, y inside P is defined as the smallest number of straight edges in a polygonal path inside P connecting x to y. We prove several geometric properties of the link(More)
This paper examines an innnite family of proximity drawings of graphs called open and closed-drawings, rst deened by Kirkpatrick and Radke 15, 21] in the context of computational morphology. Such proximity drawings include as special cases the well-known Gabriel, relative neighborhood and strip drawings. Complete characterizations of those trees that admit(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t A universal point-set supports a crossing-free drawing of any planar graph. For a planar graph with n vertices, if bends on edges of the drawing are permitted, universal point-sets of size n are known, but only if the bend points are in arbitrary positions. If the locations of the bend points must also be specified as(More)
Complete characterizations are given for those trees that can be drawn as either the relative neighborhood graph, relatively closest graph, Gabriel graph, or modified Gabriel graph of a set of points in the plane. The characterizations give rise to linear-time algorithms for determining whether a tree has such a drawing; if such a drawing exists one can be(More)
We consider contact representations of graphs where vertices are represented by cuboids, i.e. interior-disjoint axis-aligned boxes in 3D space. Edges are represented by a proper contact between the cuboids representing their end-vertices. Two cuboids make a proper contact if they intersect and their intersection is a non-zero area rectangle contained in the(More)
