Maximizing maximal angles for plane straight-line graphs

Let G=(S,E) be a plane straight-line graph on a finite point set S⊂R2 in general position. The incident angles of a point p∈S in G are the angles between any two edges of G that appear consecutively in the circular order of the edges incident to p. A plane straight-line graph is called φ-open if each vertex has an incident angle of size at least φ. In this paper we study the following type of question: What is the maximum angle φ such that for any finite set S⊂R2 of points in general position we can find a graph from a certain class of graphs on S that is φ-open? In particular, we consider the classes of triangulations, spanning trees, and spanning paths on S and give tight bounds in most cases.
