A faster algorithm to compute the visibility map of a 1.5D terrain
Löffler, Maarten; Saumell, Maria; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (2014)
Conference report
Open AccessGiven a 1.5D terrain, i.e., an x monotone polygonal line in R 2 with n vertices, and 1 m n viewpoints placed on some of the terrain vertices, we study the problem of computing the parts of the terrain that are visible ... 
A new lower bound on the maximum number of plane graphs using production matrices

Conference lecture
Restricted access  publisher's policyWe use the concept of production matrices to show that there exist sets of n points in the plane that admit ¿(41.77n) crossingfree geometric graphs. This improves the previously best known bound of ¿(41.18n) by Aichholzer ...

Article
Open AccessLet SS be a finite set of geometric objects partitioned into classes or colors . A subset S'¿SS'¿S is said to be balanced if S'S' contains the same amount of elements of SS from each of the colors. We study several ... 
Cellpaths in mono and bichromatic line arrangements in the plane

Conference report
Open AccessWe show that in every arrangement of n red and blue lines  in general position and not all of the same color  there is a path through a linear number of cells where red and blue lines are crossed alternatingly (and no ... 
Characteristic polynomials of production matrices for geometric graphs
Huemer, Clemens; Pilz, Alexander; Seara Ojea, Carlos; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (20170801)
Article
Open AccessAn n×n production matrix for a class of geometric graphs has the property that the numbers of these geometric graphs on up to n vertices can be read off from the powers of the matrix. Recently, we obtained such production ...
