We investigate the class of vertex intersection graphs of paths on a grid, and specifically consider the subclasses that are obtained when each path in the representation has at most k bends (turns). We call such a subclass the Bk-VPG graphs, k ≥ 0. In chip manufacturing, circuit layout is modeled as paths (wires) on a grid, where it is natural to constrain the number of bends per wire for reasons of feasibility and to reduce the cost of the chip. If the number k of bends is not restricted… CONTINUE READING
