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
Huemer, Clemens; Pilz, Alexander; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (2018)
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 ...

A new metamodule design for efficient reconfiguration of modular robots
Parada, Irene; Sacristán Adinolfi, Vera; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (Springer Nature, 20210501)
Article

A note on flips in diagonal rectangulations
Cardinal, Jean; Sacristán Adinolfi, Vera; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (Chapman & Hall/CRC, 20181109)
Article
Open AccessRectangulations are partitions of a square into axisaligned rectangles. A number of results provide bijections between combinatorial equivalence classes of rectangulations and families of patternavoiding permutations. ... 
A scalable method to construct compact road networks from GPS trajectories
Guo, Yuejun; Bardera Reig, Anton; Fort Masdevall, Marta; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (2021)
Article
Open AccessThe automatic generation of road networks from GPS tracks is a challenging problem that has been receiving considerable attention in the last years. Although dozens of methods have been proposed, current techniques suffer ... 
Adjacencypreserving spatial treemaps
Buchin, Kevin; Eppstein, David; Löffler, Maarten; Nöllenburg, Martin; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (2016)
Article
Open AccessRectangular layouts, subdivisions of an outer rectangle into smaller rectangles, have many applications in visualizing spatial information, for instance in rectangular cartograms in which the rectangles represent geographic ... 
Affine invariant triangulations
Bose, Prosenjit; Cano Vila, María del Pilar; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (2019)
Conference report
Restricted access  publisher's policyWe study affine invariant 2D triangulation methods. That is, methods that produce the same triangulation for a point set S for any (unknown) affine transformation of S. Our work is based on a method by Nielson [A ...

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

Characteristic polynomials of production matrices for geometric graphs
Huemer, Clemens; Pilz, Alexander; Seara Ojea, Carlos; Silveira, Rodrigo Ignacio (20170801)
