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 ... 
EdgeRemoval and NonCrossing Configurations in Geometric Graphs
Aichholzer, Oswin; Cabello, Sergio; Fabila Monroy, Ruy; Flores Peñaloza, David; Hackl, Thomas; Huemer, Clemens; Hurtado Díaz, Fernando Alfredo; Wood, David (2010)
Article
Open AccessA 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 straightline segments whose endpoints belong to V . We study the following extremal problem for ... 
Every large point set contains many collinear points or an empty pentagon

Restricted access  publisher's policyWe prove the following generalised empty pentagon theorem for every integer ℓ ≥ 2, every sufficiently large set of points in the plane contains ℓ collinear points or an empty pentagon. As an application, we settle the next ... 
Extremal graph theory for metric dimension and diameter
Hernando Martín, María del Carmen; Mora Giné, Mercè; Seara Ojea, Carlos; Wood, David (20100222)
Article
Open AccessA set of vertices S resolves a connected graph G if every vertex is uniquely determined by its vector of distances to the vertices in S. The metric dimension of G is the minimum cardinality of a resolving set of G. Let ...
