About the Authors
  • Applications of Davenport-Schinzel sequences arise in areas as diverse as robot motion planning, computer graphics and vision, and pattern matching. These sequences exhibit some surprising properties that make them a fascinating subject for research in combinatorial analysis. This book provides a comprehensive study of the combinatorial properties of Davenport-Schinzel sequences and their numerous geometric applications. These sequences are sophisticated tools for solving problems in computational and combinatorial geometry. This first book on the subject by two of its leading researchers will be an important resource for students and professionals in combinatorics, computational geometry, and related fields.

    • First book, published in 1995, on widespread technique in computational geometry
    • The authors are the key players in the area
    • Wide readership in theoretical computer science, computational geometry, discrete and combinatorial geometry, robotics and combinatorics
