Drawing graphs is an important problem that combines flavors of computational geometry and graph theory. Applications can be found in a variety of areas including circuit layout, network management, software engineering, and graphics. The main contributions of this paper can be summarized as follows: ffl We devise a model for dynamic graph algorithms, based on performing queries and updates on an implicit representation of the drawing, and we show its applications. ffl We present several efficient dynamic drawing algorithms for trees, seriesparallel digraphs, planar stdigraphs, and planar graphs. These algorithms adopt a variety of representations (e.g., straightline, polyline, visibility), and update the drawing in a smooth way.

Parallel algorithms for several graph and geometric problems are presented, including transitive closure and topological sorting in planar stgraphs, preprocessing planar subdivisions for point location queries, and construction of visibility representations and drawings of planar graphs. Most of these algorithms achieve optimal O(log n) running time using n = log n processors in the EREW PRAM model, n being the number of vertices.

Approximation of Geometric Dispersion Problems (Extended Abstract)

"... We consider problems of distributing a number of points within a polygonal region P, such that the points are "far away" from each other. Problems of this type have been considered before for the case where the possible locations form a discrete set. Dispersion problems are closely related to pac ..."

We consider problems of distributing a number of points within a polygonal region P, such that the points are "far away" from each other. Problems of this type have been considered before for the case where the possible locations form a discrete set. Dispersion problems are closely related to packing problems. While Hochbaum and Maass (1985) have given a polynomial time approximation scheme for packing, we show that geometric dispersion problems cannot be approximated arbitrarily well in polynomial time, unless P=NP. We give a 2/3 approximation algorithm for one version of the geometric dispersion problem. This algorithm is strongly polynomial in the size of the input, i. e., its running time does not depend on the area of P. We also discuss extensions and open problems.
Three Results on Frequency Assignment in Linear Cellular Networks

Each request has two more attributes: its arrival and departure times, and it is considered active from the time of arrival to the time ..."

In the frequency assignment problem we are given a graph representing a wireless network and a sequence of requests, where each request is associated with a vertex. Each request has two more attributes: its arrival and departure times, and it is considered active from the time of arrival to the time of departure. We want to assign frequencies to all requests so that at each time step any two active requests associated with the same or adjacent nodes use different frequencies. The objective is to minimize the number of frequencies used. We focus exclusively on the special case of the problem when the underlying graph is a linear network (path). For this case, we consider both the offline and online versions of the problem, and we present three results. First, in the incremental online case, where the requests arrive over time, but never depart, we give an algorithm with an optimal (asymptotic) competitive ratio 4 3. Second, in the general online case, where the requests arrive and depart over time, we improve the current lower bound on the (asymptotic) competitive ratio to 11 7. Third, we prove that the offline version of this problem is NPcomplete. 1
