We present a new representation that is guaranteed to encode any planar triangle graph of V vertices in less than 3.67V bits. Our code improves on all prior solutions to this well studied problem and lies within 13% of the theoretical lower limit of the worst case guaranteed bound. It is based on a new encoding of the CLERS string produced by Rossignacs Edgebreaker compression [Rossignac99]. The elegance and simplicity of this technique makes it suitable for a variety of 2D and 3D triangle mesh compression applications. Simple and fast compression/decompression algorithms with linear time and space complexity are available.

. We consider the problem of coding planar graphs by binary strings. Depending on whether O(1)time queries for adjacency and degree are supported, we present three sets of coding schemes which all take linear time for encoding and decoding. The encoding lengths are significantly shorter than the previously known results in each case. 1 Introduction This paper investigates the problem of encoding a graph G with n nodes and m edges into a binary string S. This problem has been extensively studied with three objectives: (1) minimizing the length of S, (2) minimizing the time needed to compute and decode S, and (3) supporting queries efficiently. A number of coding schemes with different tradeoffs have been proposed. The adjacencylist encoding of a graph is widely useful but requires 2mdlog ne bits. (All logarithms are of base 2.) A folklore scheme uses 2n bits to encode a rooted nnode tree into a string of n pairs of balanced parentheses. Since the total number of such trees is...

. We propose a fast methodology for encoding graphs with informationtheoretically minimum numbers of bits. Specifically, a graph with property is called a graph. If satisfies certain properties, then an nnode medge graph G can be encoded by a binary string X such that (1) G and X can be obtained from each other in O(n log n) time, and (2) X has at most fi(n)+o(fi(n)) bits for any continuous superadditive function fi(n) so that there are at most 2 fi(n)+o(fi(n)) distinct nnode graphs. The methodology is applicable to general classes of graphs; this paper focuses on planar graphs. Examples of such include all conjunctions over the following groups of properties: (1) G is a planar graph or a plane graph; (2) G is directed or undirected; (3) G is triangulated, triconnected, biconnected, merely connected, or not required to be connected; (4) the nodes of G are labeled with labels from f1; : : : ; ` 1 g for ` 1 n; (5) the edges of G are labeled with labels from f1; : : : ; ` 2 ...
Lineartime succinct encodings of planar graphs via canonical orderings

Abstract. Let G be an embedded planar undirected graph that has n vertices, m edges, and f faces but has no selfloop or multiple edge. If G is triangulated, we can encode it using 4 m − 1 bits, improving on the best previous bound of about 1.53m bits. In case exponential time 3 is acceptable, roughly 1.08m bits have been known to suffice. If G is triconnected, we use at most (2.5 + 2 log 3) min{n, f} −7 bits, which is at most 2.835m bits and smaller than the best previous bound of 3m bits. Both of our schemes take O(n) time for encoding and decoding.

Abstract. We introduce and study orderly spanning trees of plane graphs. This algorithmic tool generalizes canonical orderings, which exist only for triconnected plane graphs. Although not every plane graph admits an orderly spanning tree, we provide an algorithm to compute an orderly pair for any connected planar graph G, consisting of an embedded planar graph H isomorphic to G, and an orderly spanning tree of H. We also present several applications of orderly spanning trees: (1) a new constructive proof for Schnyder’s realizer theorem, (2) the first algorithm for computing an areaoptimal 2visibility drawing of a planar graph, and (3) the most compact known encoding of a planar graph with O(1)time query support. All algorithms in this paper run in linear time.
Total protection of analytic invariant information in cross tabulated tables

Abstract. To protect sensitive information in a cross tabulated table, it is a common practice to suppress some of the cells in the table. An analytic invariant is a power series in terms of the suppressed cells that has a unique feasible value and a convergence radius equal to +∞. Intuitively, the information contained in an invariant is not protected even though the values of the suppressed cells are not disclosed. This paper gives an optimal lineartime algorithm for testing whether there exist nontrivial analytic invariants in terms of the suppressed cells in a given set of suppressed cells. This paper also presents NPcompleteness results and an almost lineartime algorithm for the problem of suppressing the minimum number of cells in addition to the sensitive ones so that the resulting table does not leak analytic invariant information about a given set of suppressed cells.
