Approximation Algorithms for Edge-Covering Problem [chapter]

Mohammad Hosseinzadeh Moghaddam, Alireza Bagheri
2008 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
Focus On Special Regions In A Polygon: One useful direction for approximation is to decompose the polygon into simple sub polygons (such as convex, star-shaped, monotone, etc.).  ...  A good candidate shape for such decomposition is the star-shaped polygon. We have attended some regions in a polygon where carry interesting features.  ...

Based on this notion we can generalize the notion of star-shapedness.  ...  A polygon P is called star-shaped under staircase visibility, or simply s-star if and only if there is nonempty set of points S in the interior of P, such that any point of S sees any point of P via staircase  ...  Vassilev during the work on this paper.  ...
