    Article
    Open Access
    To untangle a geometric graph means to move some of the vertices so that the resulting geometric graph has no crossings. Pach and Tardos (Discrete Comput. Geom. 28(4): 585–592, 2002) asked if every n-vertex geometric planar ...

    A binary image $\emph{I}$ is $B_a$, $W_b$-connected, where $\emph{a,b}$ ∊ {4,8}, if its foreground is $\emph{a}$-connected and its background is $\emph{b}$-connected. We consider a local modification of a $B_a$, $W_b$-connected ...

    For a fixed integer k ≥ 0, a k-transmitter is an omnidirectional wireless transmitter with an infinite broadcast range that is able to penetrate up to k “walls”, represented as line segments in the plane. We develop lower ...

    A geometric graph is a graph G = (V;E) drawn in the plane, such that V is a point set in general position and E is a set of straight-line segments whose endpoints belong to V . We study the following extremal problem for ...

    Given a set $P$ of points in the plane, the geometric tree graph of $P$ is defined as the graph $T(P)$ whose vertices are non-crossing rectilinear spanning trees of $P$, and where two trees $T_1$ and $T_2$ are adjacent ...
