We consider the following problem known as simultaneous geometric graph embedding (SGE). Given a set of planar graphs on a shared vertex set, decide whether the vertices can be placed in the plane in such a way that for each graph the straight-line drawing is planar. We partially settle an open problem of Erten and Kobourov [5] by showing that even for two graphs the problem is NP-hard. We also show that the problem of computing the rectilinear crossing number of a graph can be reduced to a… CONTINUE READING
