By Eyal Ackerman, Kevin Buchin, Christian Knauer (auth.), Richard Pollack, János Pach, Jacob E. Goodman (eds.)

This commemorative ebook comprises the 28 significant articles that seemed within the 2008 20th Anniversary factor of the magazine Discrete & Computational Geometry, and provides a accomplished photograph of the present country of the sector. shaped in the past few a long time through the merger of the classical self-discipline of combinatorial and discrete geometry with the recent box of computational geometry that sprang up within the Seventies, discrete and computational geometry now claims the allegiance of a gigantic variety of mathematicians and desktop scientists world wide, whose most crucial paintings has been showing seeing that 1986 within the pages of the journal.

The articles during this quantity, a couple of which resolve long-outstanding difficulties within the box, have been selected by means of the editors of DCG for the significance in their effects, for the breadth in their scope, and to teach the intimate connections that experience arisen among discrete and computational geometry and different components of either desktop technological know-how and arithmetic. except the articles, the editors current an elevated preface, in addition to a suite of pictures of teams and people who have performed a tremendous function within the heritage of the sector prior to now twenty years.

With a slight abuse of notation, we will use T to denote the embedding of the tree as well. We describe a randomized algorithm for computing δ(T ). Without loss of generality, assume T is rooted at a vertex v0 so that if we remove v0 and the edges incident upon v0 , each component in the resulting forest has at most n/2 vertices; v0 can be computed in linear time; refer to Fig. 4. We partition the children of v0 into two sets A and B. , B). The partition A, B is chosen so that 1 3 n ≤ TA , TB ≤ n.

Let Pp denote the polygonal chain P [p, π(p)]. 1 Let p be a point on P , and let A, B be two portions of Pp , then δP (A, B) = δPp (A, B). This follows from the fact that the shortest path along P between any two points a, b ∈ A × B is contained in the polygonal chain Pp . Now the P -detour between two points p, q ∈ P is defined as δP (p, q) = min{dP (p, q), dP (q, p)} , pq and the detour of the whole of P is defined as δ(P ) = max δP (p, q). 2 The detour δ(P ) of P is attained by a pair of points p, q ∈ P , such that either one of them is a vertex of P , or q = π(p).

Together, (ii) and (iii) imply property (i). Computing the Detour and Spanning Ratio of Paths, Trees, and Cycles in 2D and 3D 19 Fig. 1 (Ebbers-Baumann et al. [10]) (i) Let V be the set of vertices in the polygonal chain P , and let κ ≥ 1. There is a pair (p, q) ∈ P × P so that δ(p, q) > κ if and only if there is a pair (p , q ) ∈ P × V so that δ(p , q ) > κ and p is visible from q . (ii) Assume that the detour attains a local maximum at two points, q, q that are interior points of edges e, e of P , correspondingly.
