Optimal Angular Resolution for Face-Symmetric Drawings
Vol. 15, no. 4, pp. 551-564, 2011. Regular paper.
Abstract Let G be a graph that may be drawn in the plane in such a way that all internal faces are centrally symmetric convex polygons. We show how to find a drawing of this type that maximizes the angular resolution of the drawing, the minimum angle between any two incident edges, in polynomial time, by reducing the problem to one of finding parametric shortest paths in an auxiliary graph. The running time is at most O(t3), where t is a parameter of the input graph that is at most O(n).
