Fixed parameter algorithms for minimum weight partitions

By Magdalene Grantson, Christian Borgelt and Christos Levcopoulos


Abstract. We describe a fixed parameter algorithm for computing the minimum weight triangulation (MWT) of a simple polygon with (n − k) vertices on the perimeter and k hole vertices in the interior, that is, for a total of n vertices. We show that with our algorithm the minimum weight triangulation can be found in time at most O(n 4 4 k k), and thus in time polynomial in n if k ≤ O(log n). We implemented our algorithm in Java and report experiments backing our analysis.
