A polynomial bound for untangling geometric planar graphs
Bose, Prosenjit; Dujmovic, Vida; Hurtado Díaz, Fernando Alfredo; Langerman, Stefan; Morin, Pat; Wood, David (200912)
Article
Open AccessTo 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 nvertex geometric planar ...
