Step-By-Step Straight Skeletons (Media Exposition)

pdf-format:


Abstract

We present two software packages for computing straight skeletons: Monos, our implementation of an algorithm by Biedl et al. (2015), computes the straight skeleton of a monotone input polygon, and Surfer2 implements a generalization of an algorithm by Aichholzer and Aurenhammer (1998) to handle multiplicatively-weighted planar straight-line graphs as input. The graphical user interfaces that ship with our codes support step-by-step computations, where each event can be investigated and studied by the user. This makes them a canonical candidate for educational purposes and detailed event analyses. Both codes are freely available on GitHub.
