Let $$P$$P be a set of $$n$$n points in the plane. A geometric graph $$G$$G on $$P$$P is said to be locally Gabriel if for every edge $$(u,v)$$(u,v) in $$G$$G, the Euclidean disk with the segment joining $$u$$u and $$v$$v as diameter does not contain any points of $$P$$P that are neighbors of $$u$$u or $$v$$v in $$G$$G. A locally Gabriel graph(LGG) is a generalization of Gabriel graph and is motivated by applications in wireless networks. Unlike a Gabriel graph, there is no unique LGG on a… Expand

Edge complexity of geometric graphs on convex independent point sets
In this paper, we focus on a generalised version of Gabriel graphs known as Locally Gabriel graphs ($LGGs$) and Unit distance graphs ($UDGs$) on convexly independent point sets. $UDGs$ are sub graphsExpand

The independence number of G is at least c log (r+1) n t log t, for some absolute positive constant c, which strengthens a well known result of Ajtai, Komlós and Szemerédi. Expand
Independence numbers of locally sparse graphs and a Ramsey type problem
Let G = (V,E) be a graph on n vertices with average degree t ≥ 1 in which for every vertex v ∈ V the induced subgraph on the set of all neighbors of v is r-colorable. We show that the independenceExpand
On locally Delaunay geometric graphs
The first two results improve the best previously known upper and lower bounds of $O(n^ 5/3 )$ and $\Omega(n)$ respectively (see \cite KL03 ). Expand
Proximity Structures for Geometric Graphs
This paper defines Voronoi diagrams, Delaunay triangulations, relative neighborhood graphs, Gabriel graphs which are related to the graph structure and study their complexities when G is a general geometric graph or G is some special graph derived from the application area of wireless networks.

This work presents a novel localized networking protocol that constructs a planar 2.5-spanner of UDG, called the localized Delaunay triangulation, as network topology, and shows that the delivery rates of existing localized routing protocols are increased when localizedDelaunay Triangulation is used instead of several previously proposed topologies.

A recently developed class of algorithms that solve global problems in unit distance wireless networks by means of local algorithms for obtaining planar subnetworks, approximations to minimum weight spanning trees, Delaunay triangulations, and relative neighbor graphs are reviewed. Expand
Extremal problems in discrete geometry
Several theorems involving configurations of points and lines in the Euclidean plane are established, including one that shows that there is an absolute constantc3 so that whenevern points are placed in the plane not all on the same line, then there is one point on more thanc3n of the lines determined by then points.

The Unit Distance Problem for Centrally Symmetric Convex Polygons
It is proved that fsym(n) is the restriction of f( n) to centrally symmetric convex n -gons and that fK(n), the maximum number of unit segments spanned by n points in the boundary of K, Whenever K is centrally asymmetric or has width >1, is given. Expand
Routing with guaranteed delivery in ad hoc wireless networks
The first distributed algorithms for routing that do not require duplication of packets or memory at the nodes and yet guarantee that a packet is delivered to its destination are described. Expand
