Media Exposition
Visualizing WSPDs and Their Applications (Media Exposition)

Authors: Anirban Ghosh, FNU Shariful, and David Wisnosky

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 224, 38th International Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG 2022)


Abstract
Introduced by Callahan and Kosaraju back in 1995, the concept of well-separated pair decomposition (WSPD) has occupied a special significance in computational geometry when it comes to solving distance problems in d-space. We present an in-browser tool that can be used to visualize WSPDs and several of their applications in 2-space. Apart from research, it can also be used by instructors for introducing WSPDs in a classroom setting. The tool will be permanently maintained by the third author at https://wisno33.github.io/VisualizingWSPDsAndTheirApplications/.

Media Exposition
An Interactive Tool for Experimenting with Bounded-Degree Plane Geometric Spanners (Media Exposition)

Authors: Fred Anderson, Anirban Ghosh, Matthew Graham, Lucas Mougeot, and David Wisnosky

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 189, 37th International Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG 2021)


Abstract
The construction of bounded-degree plane geometric spanners has been a focus of interest in the field of geometric spanners for a long time. To date, several algorithms have been designed with various trade-offs in degree and stretch factor. Using JSXGraph, a state-of-the-art JavaScript library for geometry, we have implemented seven of these sophisticated algorithms so that they can be used for further research and teaching computational geometry. We believe that our interactive tool can be used by researchers from related fields to understand and apply the algorithms in their research. Our tool can be run in any modern browser. The tool will be permanently maintained by the second author at https://ghoshanirban.github.io/bounded-degree-plane-spanners/index.html

Sparse Hop Spanners for Unit Disk Graphs

Authors: Adrian Dumitrescu, Anirban Ghosh, and Csaba D. Tóth

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 181, 31st International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation (ISAAC 2020)


Abstract
A unit disk graph G on a given set of points P in the plane is a geometric graph where an edge exists between two points p,q ∈ P if and only if |pq| ≤ 1. A subgraph G' of G is a k-hop spanner if and only if for every edge pq ∈ G, the topological shortest path between p,q in G' has at most k edges. We obtain the following results for unit disk graphs. 1) Every n-vertex unit disk graph has a 5-hop spanner with at most 5.5n edges. We analyze the family of spanners constructed by Biniaz (2020) and improve the upper bound on the number of edges from 9n to 5.5n. 2) Using a new construction, we show that every n-vertex unit disk graph has a 3-hop spanner with at most 11n edges. 3) Every n-vertex unit disk graph has a 2-hop spanner with O(nlog n) edges. This is the first nontrivial construction of 2-hop spanners. 4) For every sufficiently large n, there exists a set P of n points on a circle, such that every plane hop spanner on P has hop stretch factor at least 4. Previously, no lower bound greater than 2 was known. 5) For every point set on a circle, there exists a plane 4-hop spanner. As such, this provides a tight bound for points on a circle. 6) The maximum degree of k-hop spanners cannot be bounded from above by a function of k.
