Abstract. Let G be a planar graph of n vertices, v1,…,vn, and let {p1,…,pn} be a set of n points in the plane. We present an algorithm for constructing in O(n2) time a planar embedding of G, where vertex vi is represented by point pi and each edge is represented by a polygonal curve with O(n) bends (internal vertices). This bound is asymptotically optimal in the worst case. In fact, if G is a planar graph containing at least m pairwise independent edges and the vertices of G are randomly…
