Geometric Optimization Revisited [chapter]

Pankaj K. Agarwal, Esther Ezra, Kyle Fox
2019 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We review the progress made in recent years on a number of such geometric optimization problems, with an emphasis on how geometry has been exploited to develop better algorithms.  ...  Instead of discussing many problems, we focus on a few problems, namely, set cover, hitting set, independent set, and computing maps between point sets.  ...  The case of arbitrary polygons in the plane has been studied by Har-Peled [50] , who showed a QPTAS based on the decomposition in [2] .  ...

Distance Measures for Geometric Graphs [article]

Sushovan Majhi, Carola Wenk
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We have curated their associated cost functions for the context of geometric graphs. Alongside studying the metric properties of GED and GGD, we investigate how the two notions compare.  ...  We further our understanding of the computational aspects of GGD by showing that the distance is 𝒩𝒫-hard to compute, even if the graphs are planar and arbitrary cost coefficients are allowed.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors thank Erfan Hosseini, Erin Chambers, and Elizabeth Munch for fruitful discussions.  ...

Complexity of Computing Distances between Geometric Trees [chapter]

Aasa Feragen
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
However, the classical proof of NP completeness depends on a particular case of edit distance with integer edit costs for trees with discrete labels, and does not obviously carry over to the class of geometric  ...  It is well-known that the tree edit distance for unordered trees is generally NP complete to compute.  ...  Acknowledgements The author would like to thank Sean Skwerer and Scott Provan for valuable discussions on complexity of tree algorithms.  ...

Use of Scene Geometry Priors for Data Association in Egocentric Views

Huiqin Chen, Emanuel Aldea, Sylvie Le Hegarat-Mascle, Vincent Despiegel
2020 2020 8th International Workshop on Biometrics and Forensics (IWBF)  
The joint use of dynamic, egocentric view cameras and of traditional overview surveillance cameras in high-risk contexts has become a promising avenue for advancing public safety and security applications  ...  To address this issue, we propose to use two independent geometric priors and integrate them with the classic appearance cues into the objection function of data association algorithm.  ...  We also study the influence of the cheirality constraint on the association performance.
