This e-book constitutes the completely refereed post-conference lawsuits of the 18th jap convention on Discrete and Computational Geometry and Graphs, JDCDGG 2015, held in Kyoto, Japan, in September 2015.

The overall of 25 papers integrated during this quantity was once rigorously reviewed and chosen from sixty four submissions. The papers characteristic advances made within the box of computational geometry and concentrate on rising applied sciences, new technique and purposes, graph thought and dynamics.

This court cases are devoted to Naoki Katoh at the celebration of his retirement from Kyoto University.

In keeping with a sequence of lectures for grownup scholars, this vigorous and enjoyable ebook proves that, faraway from being a dusty, uninteresting topic, geometry is in reality filled with attractiveness and fascination. The author's infectious enthusiasm is positioned to take advantage of in explaining some of the key recommendations within the box, beginning with the Golden quantity and taking the reader on a geometric trip through Shapes and Solids, in the course of the Fourth size, completing with Einstein's Theories of Relativity.

Pi is likely one of the few strategies in arithmetic whose point out conjures up a reaction of popularity and curiosity in these now not involved professionally with the topic. but, regardless of this, no resource e-book on Pi has ever been released. Mathematicians and historians of arithmetic will locate this ebook integral.

Our target polygon Q consists of n5 partition rectangles of width p and height 1 spaced dt apart, connected by a bar of the same dimensions as the source polygon’s bar. The ﬁrst partition rectangle’s left edge and last partition rectangle’s right edge are ﬂush with the ends of the bar. The illustration of both polygons are given in Fig. 1. Both polygons’ bars have the same area and the total area of the element rectangles equals the total area of the partition rectangles, so the polygons have the same area.

Set F = ∅. For each conﬁguration c = (I1 , I2 ; z) ∈ F , do Steps (a)–(c) that apply, and put the generated conﬁgurations in F . (a) [J1i (ρ) = ∅ ∧ J2i (ρ) = ∅] The problem instance is not ρ-feasible (no point can pierce Di (ρ)). Stop (b) [J1i (ρ) = ∅] If I1 ∩ J1i (ρ) = ∅ then convert c into (I1 ∩ J1i (ρ), I2 ; z) else convert it into (J1i (ρ), I2 ; z + 1) and add r(I1 ) into ℘(c). (c) [J2i (ρ) = ∅] If I2 ∩ J2i (ρ) = ∅ then convert c into (I1 , I2 ∩ J2i (ρ); z) else convert it into (I1 , J2i (ρ); z + 1) and add r(I2 ) into ℘(c).

3 Main Results Now that we have deﬁned the problems, we state our main results. Theorem 1. k-Piece Dissection is NP-hard. We do not know whether k-Piece Dissection is in NP (and thus is NPcomplete). We discuss the diﬃculty of showing containment in NP in Sect. 7. We also prove that the optimization version, Min Piece Dissection, is hard to approximate to within some constant ratio: Theorem 2. 2 Both results are based on essentially the same reduction, from 5-Partition for Theorem 1 or from Max 5-Partition for Theorem 2.
