Formally, A triangulation is a decomposition of a polygon into triangles by a maximal set of non-intersecting diagonals. The proof proceeds in a few steps: Triangulate the polygon with its diagonals. Request PDF | Polygon triangulation | This paper considers different approaches how to divide polygons into triangles what is known as a polygon triangulation. The triangulation is not deterministic, but it is certainly possible to show that every triangulation of a polygon P of n vertices has n-3 diagonals and results in n-2 triangles. This particular polygon is actually an example of something that holds more generally: the dual of a triangulation of a polygon is a tree if and only if the polygon is simple. Triangulation -- Proof by Induction. We first establish a preliminary result: Every triangulation of an n-gon has (n-2)-triangles formed by (n-3) diagonals.

Proof. Motivation Triangulating a polygon Visibility in polygons Triangulation Proof of the Art gallery theorem. triangulation of a simple polygon. The set of non-intersecting diagonals should be maximal to insure that no triangle has a polygon vertex in the interior of its edges. The set of non-intersecting diagonals should be maximal to insure that no triangle has a polygon vertex in the interior of its edges. /Ascent 981 Base Case: n= 3 (Obvious) Case 1: Neighbors of vmake a diagonal. /FamilyName (Century Schoolbook L) def This polygon needs to be triangulated, i.e. 525 768.9 627.2 896.7 743.3 766.7 678.3 766.7 729.4 562.2 715.6 743.3 743.3 998.9 /FontInfo 5 dict dup begin 460 511.1 306.7 306.7 460 255.6 817.8 562.2 511.1 511.1 460 421.7 408.9 332.2 536.7 Polygon Triangulation 3 ... •A diagonal can be found in O(n) time (using the proof that a diagonal exists) triangulation T, (α 1, α 2, α 3, … α 3m) = A(T) with α 1 being the smallest angle • A(T) is larger than A(T’) iff there exists an i such that α j = α’ j for all j < i and α i > α’ i • Best triangulation is triangulation that is angle optimal, i.e. Proof Compute a triangulation of the polygon and then take the triangulation dual. << << /FontType 1 def 11 0 obj Triangulation -- Proof by Induction. Such an algorithm was proposed by Bernard Chazelle in 1990.
