Routing in polygonal domains
, ManKwun Chiu, Matias Korman, , André van Renssen, Marcel Roeloffzen, , , , and .Abstract: We consider the problem of routing a data packet through the visibility graph of a polygonal domain $P$ with $n$ vertices and $h$ holes. We may preprocess $P$ to obtain a label and a routing table for each vertex of $P$. Then, we must be able to route a data packet between any two vertices $p$ and $q$ of $P$, where each step must use only the label of the target node $q$ and the routing table of the current node. For any fixed $\epsilon>0$, we present a routing scheme that always achieves a routing path whose length exceeds the shortest path by a factor of at most $1+\epsilon$. The labels have $O(\log n)$ bits, and the routing tables are of size $O((\epsilon$$^{−1}+h)\log n)$. The preprocessing time is $O(n^2\log n)$. It can be improved to $O(n^2)$ for simple polygons.

Balanced line separators of unit disk graphs
, ManKwun Chiu, , Matias Korman, , André van Renssen, Marcel Roeloffzen, , and .Abstract: We prove a geometric version of the graph separator theorem for the unit disk intersection graph: for any set of $n$ unit disks in the plane there exists a line $\ell$ such that $\ell$ intersects at most $O((m+n)\log n)$ disks and each of the halfplanes determined by $\ell$ contains at most $2n/3$ unit disks from the set, where $m$ is the number of intersecting pairs of disks. We also show that an axisparallel line intersecting $O(m+n)$ disks exists, but each halfplane may contain up to $4n/5$ disks. We give an almost tight lower bound (up to sublogarithmic factors) for our approach, and also show that no lineseparator of sublinear size in $n$ exists when we look at disks of arbitrary radii, even when $m=0$. Proofs are constructive and suggest simple algorithms that run in linear time. Experimental evaluation has also been conducted, which shows that for random instances our method outperforms the method by Fox and Pach (whose separator has size $O(m)$).

Implicit manifold reconstruction
SiuWing Cheng and ManKwun Chiu.Abstract: Let $M \subset \mathbb{R}^d$ be a compact, smooth and boundaryless manifold with dimension $m$ and unit reach. We show how to construct a function $\varphi: \mathbb{R}^d \rightarrow \mathbb{R}$$^{dm}$ from a uniform $(\epsilon,\kappa)$sample $P$ of $\cal M$ that offers several guarantees. Let $Z_\varphi$ denote the zero set of $\varphi$. Let $\widehat{M}$ denote the set of points at distance $\epsilon$ or less from $\cal M$. There exists $\epsilon_0 \in (0,1)$ that decreases as $d$ increases such that if $\epsilon \leq \epsilon_0$, the following guarantees hold. First, $Z_\varphi \cap \widehat{M}$ is a faithful approximation of $\cal M$ in the sense that $Z_\varphi \cap \widehat{M}$ is homeomorphic to $\cal M$, the Hausdorff distance between $Z_\varphi \cap \widehat{M}$ and $\cal M$ is $O(m^{5/2}\epsilon^{2})$, and the normal spaces at nearby points in $Z_\varphi \cap \widehat{M}$ and $\cal M$ make an angle $O(m^2\sqrt{\kappa\epsilon})$. Second, $\varphi$ has local support; in particular, the value of $\varphi$ at a point is affected only by sample points in $P$ that lie within a distance of $O(m\epsilon)$. Third, we give a projection operator that only uses sample points in $P$ at distance $O(m\epsilon)$ from the initial point. The projection operator maps any initial point near $P$ onto $Z_\varphi \cap \widehat{M}$ in the limit by repeated applications.

Hanabi is NPhard, even for cheaters who look at their cards
, ManKwun Chiu, , Matias Korman, , André van Renssen, Marcel Roeloffzen, and .Abstract: In this paper we study a cooperative card game called Hanabi from the viewpoint of algorithmic combinatorial game theory. In Hanabi, each card has one among $c$ colors and a number between $1$ and $n$. The aim is to make, for each color, a pile of cards of that color with all increasing numbers from $1$ to $n$. At each time during the game, each player holds $h$ cards in hand. Cards are drawn sequentially from a deck and the players should decide whether to play, discard or store them for future use. One of the features of the game is that the players can see their partners’ cards but not their own and information must be shared through hints. We introduce a singleplayer, perfectinformation model and show that the game is intractable even for this simplified version where we forego both the hidden information and the multiplayer aspect of the game, even when the player can only hold two cards in her hand. On the positive side, we show that the decision version of the problemto decide whether or not numbers from $1$ through $n$ can be played for every colorcan be solved in (almost) linear time for some restricted cases.

High dimensional consistent digital segments
ManKwun Chiu and Matias Korman.Abstract: We consider the problem of digitalizing Euclidean line segments from $\mathbb{R}^d$ to $\mathbb{Z}^d$. Christ et al. (DCG, 2012) showed how to construct a set of consistent digital segments (CDS) for $d=2$: a collection of segments connecting any two points in $\mathbb{Z}^2$ that satisfies the natural extension of the Euclidean axioms to $\mathbb{Z}^d$. In this paper we study the construction of CDSs in higher dimensions. We show that any total order can be used to create a set of consistent digital rays CDR in $\mathbb{Z}^d$ (a set of rays emanating from a fixed point $p$ that satisfies the extension of the Euclidean axioms). We fully characterize for which total orders the construction holds and study their Hausdorff distance, which in particular positively answers the question posed by Christ et al..

Hanabi is NPcomplete, even for cheaters who look at their cards
, ManKwun Chiu, , Matias Korman, , André van Renssen, Marcel Roeloffzen, and .Abstract: This paper studies a cooperative card game called Hanabi from an algorithmic combinatorial game theory viewpoint. The aim of the game is to play cards from $1$ to $n$ in increasing order (this has to be done independently in $c$ different colors). Cards are drawn from a deck one by one. Drawn cards are either immediately played, discarded or stored for future use (overall each player can store up to $h$ cards). The main feature of the game is that players know the cards their partners hold (but not theirs. This information must be shared through hints). We introduce a simplified mathematical model of a singleplayer version of the game, and show several complexity results: the game is intractable in a general setting even if we forego with the hidden information aspect of the game. On the positive side, the game can be solved in linear time for some interesting restricted cases (i.e., for small values of $h$ and $c$).

Implicit manifold reconstruction
SiuWing Cheng and ManKwun Chiu.Abstract: Let $P$ be a dense set of points sampled from an $m$dimensional compact smooth manifold $\Sigma$ in $\mathbb{R}^d$. We show how to construct an implicit function $\varphi: \mathbb{R}^d \rightarrow \mathbb{R}^dm$ from $P$ so that the zeroset $S_\varphi$ of $\varphi$ contains a homeomorphic approximation of $\Sigma$. The Hausdorff distance between $\Sigma$ and this homeomorphic approximation is at most $\varepsilon^\tau$ for any fixed $\tau < 2$. Moreover, for every point $\mathsf{x}$ at distance $\varepsilon^\tau$ or less from $\Sigma$, the normal space of $S_\varphi$ at $\mathsf{x}$ makes an $O(\varepsilon^(\tau1)/2)$ angle with the normal space of $\Sigma$ at the point nearest to $\mathsf{x}$. The function $\varphi$ has local support, which makes local homeomorphic reconstruction possible without a complete sampling.
