"... We use Schnyder woods of 3connected planar graphs to produce convex straight line drawings on a grid of size (n − 2 − ∆) × (n − 2 − ∆). The parameter ∆ ≥ 0 depends on the Schnyder wood used for the drawing. This parameter is in the range 0 ≤ ∆ ≤ n 2 − 2. The algorithm is a refinement of the fac ..."

We use Schnyder woods of 3connected planar graphs to produce convex straight line drawings on a grid of size (n − 2 − ∆) × (n − 2 − ∆). The parameter ∆ ≥ 0 depends on the Schnyder wood used for the drawing. This parameter is in the range 0 ≤ ∆ ≤ n 2 − 2. The algorithm is a refinement of the facecountingalgorithm, thus, in particular, the size of the grid is at most (f − 2) × (f − 2). The above bound on the grid size simultaneously matches or improves all previously known bounds for convex drawings, in particular Schnyder’s and the recent Zhang and He bound for triangulations and the Chrobak and Kant bound for 3connected planar graphs. The algorithm takes linear time. The drawing algorithm has been implemented and tested. The expected grid size for the drawing of a random triangulation is close to 7 7

Let a planar graph G = (V; E) and a partition V = A[B of the vertices be given. Can we draw G without edge crossings such that the partition is clearly visible? Such drawings aid to display partitions and cuts as they arise in various applications. In this paper, we first review a number of models of displaying the partition. Studying two of these models in detail, we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of a straightline planar drawing, and algorithms to create such drawings, if possible, with area O(n²).

Abstract. In this paper, we study a new problem of finding a convex drawing of graphs with a nonconvex boundary. It is proved that every triconnected plane graph whose boundary is fixed with a starshaped polygon admits a drawing in which every inner facial cycle is drawn as a convex polygon. Such a drawing, called an innerconvex drawing, can be obtained in linear time. 1
Drawing planar partitions III: Two constrained embedding problems

Can we draw G without crossing such that the partition is clearly visible? For three models used to display the partition, we developed necessary and sufficient con ..."

In two previous papers, we studied the following problem: Given a planar graph G = (V; E) and a partition V = A [ B of the vertices. Can we draw G without crossing such that the partition is clearly visible? For three models used to display the partition, we developed necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of such a drawing. The time to test these conditions was dominated by verifying whether there exists a planar embedding of G that satisfies certain additional properties. In this paper, we study how these constrained embedding tests can be done in linear time.

Let G be an nnode planar graph. In a visibility representation of G,eachnodeofG is represented by a horizontal line segment such that the line segments representing any two adjacent nodes of G are vertically visible to each other. In the present paper we give the best known compact visibility representation of G. Given a canonical ordering of the triangulated G, our algorithm draws the graph incrementally in a greedy manner. We show that one of three canonical orderings obtained �from Schnyder’s � realizer for the triangulated G yields a visibility representation of G no wider than 22n−40. Our easytoimplement O(n)time algorithm bypasses the complicated subroutines for 15 fourconnected components and fourblock trees required by the best previously known algorithm of Kant. Our result provides a negative answer to Kant’s open question about whether � � 3n−6 is a 2 worstcase lower bound on the required width. Also, if G has no degreethree (respectively, degreefive) internal node, then our visibility representation for G is no wider than � �

We study the classic graph drawing problem of drawing a planar graph using straightline edges with a prescribed convex polygon as the outer face. Unlike previous algorithms for this problem, which may produce drawings with exponential area, our method produces drawings with polynomial area. In addition, we allow for collinear points on the boundary, provided such vertices do not create overlapping edges. Thus, we solve an open problem of Duncan et al., which, when combined with their work, implies that we can produce a planar straightline drawing of a combinatoriallyembedded genusg graph with the graph’s canonical polygonal schema drawn as a convex polygonal external face.

We discuss the algorithm engineering aspects of AGD, a software library of algorithms for graph drawing. AGD represents algorithms as classes that provide one or more methods for calling the algorithm. There is a common base class, also called the type of an algorithm, for algorithms providing basically the same functionality. This enables us to exchange components and experiment with various algorithms and implementations of the same type. We give examples for algorithm engineering with AGD for drawing general nonhierarchical graphs and hierarchical graphs.
