Rotation distance, triangulations, and hyperbolic geometry
 J. Amer. Math. Soc
, 1988

One can execute a rotation by collapsing an internal edge of the tree to a point, thereby obtaining a node with three children, and then reexpanding the node of order three in the alternative way int ..."

One can execute a rotation by collapsing an internal edge of the tree to a point, thereby obtaining a node with three children, and then reexpanding the node of order three in the alternative way into two nodes of

How many guards are necessary, and how many are sufficient to patrol the paintings and works of art in an art gallery with n walls? This wonderfully naïve question of combinatorial geometry has, since its formulation, stimulated an increasing number of of papers and surveys. In 1987, J. O’Rourke published his book Art Gallery Theorems and Algorithms which has further fueled this area of research. The present book is being written almost 10 years since the publication of O’Rourke’s book, and the need for an uptodate manuscript on Art Gallery or Illumination Problems is evident. Some important open problems stated in O’Rourke’s book, such as... have been solved. New directions of research have since been investigated, including: watchman routes, floodlight illumination problems, guards with limited visibility or mobility, illumination of families of convex sets on the plane, guarding of rectilinear polygons, and others. In this book, we study these results and try to give a complete

Finite graph homology may seem trivial, but for infinite graphs things become interesting. We present a new approach that builds the cycle space of a graph not on its finite cycles but on its topological circles, the homeomorphic images of the unit circle in the space formed by the graph together with its ends.

Greedy Routing is a class of routing algorithms in which the packets are forwarded in a manner that reduces the distance to the destination at every step. In an attempt to provide theoretical guarantees for a class of greedy routing algorithms, Papadimitriou and Ratajczak [PR05] came up with the following conjecture: Any 3connected planar graph can be drawn in the plane such that for every pair of vertices s and t a distance decreasing path can be found. A path s = v1,v2,...,vk = t in a drawing is said to be distance decreasing if �vi − t � < �vi−1 − t�, 2 ≤ i ≤ k where �... � denotes the Euclidean distance. We settle this conjecture in the affirmative for the case of triangulations. A partitioning of the edges of a triangulation G into 3 trees, called the realizer of G, was first developed by Walter Schnyder who also gave a drawing algorithm based on this. We generalize Schnyder’s algorithm to obtain a whole class of drawings of any given triangulation G. We show, using the KnasterKuratowskiMazurkiewicz Theorem, that some drawing of G belonging to this class is greedy. 1 1

We present new graphtheoretical conditions for polyhedra of inscribable type and Delaunay triangulations. We establish several sufficient conditions of the following general form: if a polyhedron has a sufficiently rich collection of Hamiltonian subgraphs, then it is of inscribable type. These results have several consequences: ffl All 4connected polyhedra are of inscribable type. ffl All simplicial polyhedra in which all vertex degrees are between 4 and 6, inclusive, are of inscribable type. ffl All triangulations without chords or nonfacial triangles are realizable as combinatorially equivalent Delaunay triangulations. We also strengthen some earlier results about matchings in polyhedra of inscribable type. Specifically, we show that any nonbipartite polyhedron of inscribable type has a perfect matching containing any specified edge, and that any bipartite polyhedron of inscribable type has a perfect matching containing any two specified disjoint edges. We give examples showing t...

Our WORLD is a multiple one both shown by the natural world and human beings. For example, the observation enables one knowing that there are infinite planets in the universe. Each of them revolves on its own axis and has its own seasons. In the human society, these rich or poor, big or small countries appear and each of them has its own system. All of these show that our WORLD is not in homogenous but in multiple. Besides, all things that one can acknowledge is determined by his eyes, or ears, or nose, or tongue, or body or passions, i.e., these six organs, which means the WORLD consists of have and not have parts for human beings. For thousands years, human being has never stopped his steps for exploring its behaviors of all kinds. We are used to the idea that our space has three dimensions: length, breadth and height with time providing the fourth dimension of spacetime by Einstein. In the string or superstring theories, we encounter 10 dimensions. However, we do not even know what the right degree of freedom is, as Witten said. Today, we have known two heartening notions for sciences. One is the Smarandache multispace came into being by purely logic.
