He proposed a method based on search- ing for "ears" and "cutting" them off. /Widths[278 296 389 556 556 833 815 204 333 333 500 606 278 606 278 278 556 556 556 %!FontType1-1.0: NewCenturySchlbk-Roman inductive step: n > 3; assume theorem holds for every m < n first, prove existence of a diagonal: let v be the leftmost vertex of P; let u and w be the two neighboring vertices of v; if open segment uw lies inside P, then uw is a diagonal; back next next The proof … Polygon Triangulation Daniel Vlasic. /FontBBox[-217 -302 1000 981] 's proof, which establishes a beautiful partitioning result that is as important for orthogonal polygons as triangulation is for polygons: namely, that every 722 1000 722 722 722 722 722 407 407 407 407 778 815 778 778 778 778 778 606 778 << proofs. diagonal splits P into polygons P 1 (m 1 vertices) and P 2 (m 2 vertices) both m 1 and m 2 must be less than n, so by induction P 1 and P 2 can be triangulated; hence, P can be triangulated cMf*@5=�Ql7�2�AҀ@�4$�T�&��������[�+=m����xύ]�� ߃�I(�|� �����j��6�a�7fE,/f���U,%\��!8�&���3��h���=Xd�'8�C����@#����(��CRK/���v�X@�|3�`UU��,DѶw )~�����\�9F<3������P�0�H��>{/$�T|���]f��~������I��y��ʶ�K+���r��#=zz�z�h%k��NQ|�!�^P΃�Pt~}Ԡ�T�s���b1�3Y���x�'��aW%,�q���ն> ��܀��_��|d� ���Uw�)ܜ�+H ������T�Z"�Lp@m���*A�[��_�}��%�k���/�$O�0ew��Bſ+�V=�H�z���3��T^L2pP�xv�#�!��'�0�,�9��u�|��ɲ�eyx������� ��m��j[1Ӗ 10 0 obj /Notice (\(URW\)++,Copyright 1999 by \(URW\)++ Design & Development. /ProcSet[/PDF/Text] Using Lemma 1.3, find a diagonal cutting P into polygons … /Ascent 981 qVr0��bf�1�$m��q+�MsstW���7����k���u�#���^B%�f�����;��Ts3‘[�vM�J����:1���Kg�Q:�k��qY1Q;Sg��VΦ�X�%�`*�d�o�]::_k8�o��u�W#��p��0r�ؿ۽�:cJ�"b�G�y��f���9���~�]�w߷���=�;�_��w��ǹ=�?��� 173/Omega/ff/fi/fl/ffi/ffl/dotlessi/dotlessj/grave/acute/caron/breve/macron/ring/cedilla/germandbls/ae/oe/oslash/AE/OE/Oslash/suppress/dieresis triangulation does indeed always exist for such geometric shapes. 638.9 638.9 958.3 958.3 319.4 351.4 575 575 575 575 575 869.4 511.1 597.2 830.6 894.4 Triangulation -- Proof by Induction. 22 0 obj << n 3 n 3 Proof: For the upper bound, 3-color any triangulation of the polygon and take the color with the minimum number of … † Proof by Induction.
