{"abstract":[{"lang":"eng","text":"A straight skeleton is a well-known geometric structure, and several algorithms exist to construct the straight skeleton for a given polygon or planar straight-line graph. In this paper, we ask the reverse question: Given the straight skeleton (in form of a planar straight-line graph, with some rays to infinity), can we reconstruct a planar straight-line graph for which this was the straight skeleton? We show how to reduce this problem to the problem of finding a line that intersects a set of convex polygons. We can find these convex polygons and all such lines in \$O(nlog n)\$ time in the Real RAM computer model, where \$n\$ denotes the number of edges of the input graph. We also explain how our approach can be used for recognizing Voronoi diagrams of points, thereby completing a partial solution provided by Ash and Bolker in 1985.\r\n"}],"publication_identifier":{"eisbn":["978-0-7695-5037-4 "]},"publist_id":"4763","date_published":"2013-12-01T00:00:00Z","page":"37 - 46","quality_controlled":"1","title":"Recognizing straight skeletons and Voronoi diagrams and reconstructing their input","type":"conference","alternative_title":["2013 10th International Symposium on Voronoi Diagrams in Science and Engineering (ISVD 2013) "],"day":"01","month":"12","status":"public","conference":{"name":"ISVD: Voronoi Diagrams in Science and Engineering","end_date":"2013-07-10","location":"St. Petersburg, Russia","start_date":"2013-07-08"},"publisher":"IEEE","_id":"2209","year":"2013","user_id":"2DF688A6-F248-11E8-B48F-1D18A9856A87","date_created":"2018-12-11T11:56:20Z","oa_version":"None","publication_status":"published","date_updated":"2021-01-12T06:56:00Z","citation":{"chicago":"Biedl, Therese, Martin Held, and Stefan Huber. “Recognizing Straight Skeletons and Voronoi Diagrams and Reconstructing Their Input,” 37–46.
