Davenport–Schinzel Sequences and their Geometric Applications (with Micha Sharir, Cambridge . Pankaj Kumar Agarwal at the Mathematics Genealogy Project

Davenport–Schinzel Sequences and their Geometric Applications (with Micha Sharir, Cambridge University Press, 1995, ISBN 978-0-521-47025-4). This book concerns Davenport–Schinzel sequences, sequences of symbols drawn from a given alphabet with the property that no subsequence of more than some finite length consists of two alternating symbols.

Davenport–Schinzel sequences and the combinatorial structure of lower envelopes of collections of functions make the sequences very attractive because a variety of geometric problems can be formulated in terms of lower envelopes. A near-linear bound on the maximum length of Davenport–Schinzel sequences enable us to derive sharp bounds on the combinatorial structure underlying various geometric problems, which in turn yields ecient algorithms for these problems. Both authors have been supported by a grant from the . Israeli Binational Science Foundation.

Davenport Schinzel sequences are sequences that do not contain forbidden alternating subsequences of certain length. P. Agarwal, M. Sharir and P. Shor, Tight bounds on the length of Davenport Schinzel sequences, in preparation. M. Atallah, Dynamic computational geometry, Proc.

Davenport–Schinzel Sequences and their Geometric Applications (with Micha Sharir, Cambridge University Press, 1995, ISBN 978-0-521-47025-4). Computational geometry is a branch of computer science devoted to the study of algorithms which can be stated in terms of geometry. Some purely geometrical problems arise out of the study of computational geometric algorithms, and such problems are also considered to be part of computational geometry.
