Abstract. The intersection graph of a set of geometric objects is defined as agraph G = (S; E) in which there is an edge between two nodes si; sj 2 S if si " sj 6 =;. The problem of computing a maximum independent set in the intersection graph of a set of objects is known to be NPcomplete for most casesin two and higher dimensions. We present approximation algorithms for computing a maximum independent set of intersection graphs of convex objects in R 2. Specifically, given a set of n line segments in the plane with maximum independent set of size ^, we present algorithms that find an independent set of size atleast ( i) (^=2 log(2n=^)) 1=2 in time O(n
An Approximation Algorithm for Cutting Out Convex Polygons
 PROCEEDINGS OF THE FOURTEENTH ACMSIAM SYMPOSIUM ON DISCRETE ALGORITHMS, (SODA '03
, 2004
"... We provide an O(log n)approximation algorithm for the following problem. Given a convex ngon P, drawn on a convex piece of paper, cut P out of the piece of paper in the cheapest possible way. No polynomialtime approximation algorithm was known for this problem posed in 1985. ..."

We provide an O(log n)approximation algorithm for the following problem. Given a convex ngon P, drawn on a convex piece of paper, cut P out of the piece of paper in the cheapest possible way. No polynomialtime approximation algorithm was known for this problem posed in 1985.
The Cost of Cutting Out Convex nGons
, 2003
"... Given a convex ngon P drawn on a piece of paper Q of unit diameter we prove that it can be cut with a total cost of O(log n). This bound is shown to be asymptotically tight: a regular ngon (whose circumscribed circle has radius, say, 1/3) drawn on a square piece of paper of unit diameter requires ..."

Given a convex ngon P drawn on a piece of paper Q of unit diameter we prove that it can be cut with a total cost of O(log n). This bound is shown to be asymptotically tight: a regular ngon (whose circumscribed circle has radius, say, 1/3) drawn on a square piece of paper of unit diameter requires a cut cost of 37 n).
