We settle a problem of Dujmović, Eppstein, Suderman, and Wood by showing that there exists a function f with the property that every planar graph G with maximum degree d admits a drawing with noncrossing straight-line edges, using at most f(d) different slopes. If we allow the edges to be represented by polygonal paths with one bend, then 2d slopes suffice. Allowing two bends per edge, every planar graph with maximum degree d ≥ 3 can be drawn using segments of at most ⌈d/2⌉ different slopes… CONTINUE READING
