Competitive Searching for a Line on a Line Arrangement

Authors: Quirijn Bouts, Thom Castermans, Arthur van Goethem, Marc van Kreveld, and Wouter Meulemans

Abstract
We discuss the problem of searching for an unknown line on a known or unknown line arrangement by a searcher S, and show that a search strategy exists that finds the line competitively, that is, with detour factor at most a constant when compared to the situation where S has all knowledge. In the case where S knows all lines but not which one is sought, the strategy is 79-competitive. We also show that it may be necessary to travel on Omega(n) lines to realize a constant competitive ratio. In the case where initially, S does not know any line, but learns about the ones it encounters during the search, we give a 414.2-competitive search strategy.

Mapping Polygons to the Grid with Small Hausdorff and Fréchet Distance

Authors: Quirijn W. Bouts, Irina Irina Kostitsyna, Marc van Kreveld, Wouter Meulemans, Willem Sonke, and Kevin Verbeek

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 57, 24th Annual European Symposium on Algorithms (ESA 2016)


Abstract
We show how to represent a simple polygon P by a (pixel-based) grid polygon Q that is simple and whose Hausdorff or Fréchet distance to P is small. For any simple polygon P, a grid polygon exists with constant Hausdorff distance between their boundaries and their interiors. Moreover, we show that with a realistic input assumption we can also realize constant Fréchet distance between the boundaries. We present algorithms accompanying these constructions, heuristics to improve their output while keeping the distance bounds, and experiments to assess the output.
