Saturated k-Plane Drawings with Few Edges

  title={Saturated k-Plane Drawings with Few Edges},
  author={Fabian Klute and Irene Parada},
A drawing of a graph is $k$-plane if no edge is crossed more than $k$ times. In this paper we study saturated $k$-plane drawings with few edges. This are $k$-plane drawings in which no edge can be added without violating $k$-planarity. For every number of vertices $n>k+1$, we present a tight construction with $\frac{n-1}{k+1}$ edges for the case in which the edges can self-intersect. If we restrict the drawings to be $\ell$-simple we show that the number of edges in saturated $k$-plane drawings…

Saturated $2$-planar drawings with few edges

A drawing of a graph is k-plane if every edge contains at most k crossings. A k-plane drawing is saturated if we cannot add any edge so that the drawing remains k-plane. It is well-known that



Improvements on the density of maximal 1‐planar graphs

A graph is 1-planar if it can be drawn in the plane such that each edge is crossed at most once and a maximal 1-plane graph has at least $2.1n-O(1)$ edges.

On the Density of Maximal 1-Planar Graphs

It is shown that there are sparse maximal 1-planar graphs with only $\frac{45}{17} n + \mathcal{O}(1)$ edges, and it is proved that a maximal 1 -planar rotation system of a graph uniquely determines its 1- Planar embedding.

Saturated simple and k-simple topological graphs

Saturated simple and 2-simple topological graphs with few edges

Saturated simple and 2-simple graphs with few edges are constructed that have some vertices with low degree and a new upper bound for k- simple graphs considering all values of k is improved.

On the edge-vertex ratio of maximal thrackles

The edge-vertex ratio of maximal thrackles, that is, Thrackles in which no edge between already existing vertices can be inserted such that the resulting drawing remains a thrackle, is investigated and it is shown that the edge- Vertex ratio can be arbitrarily small.

Enumerating Order Types for Small Point Sets with Applications

A complete and reliable data base for all possible order types of size n=10 or less is established and substantiate the usefulness of the data base by applying it to several problems in computational and combinatorial geometry.
