Computing Smallest Convex Intersecting Polygons

LIPIcs-ESA-2022-9.pdf (0.9 MB)


A polygon C is an intersecting polygon for a set O of objects in ℝ² if C intersects each object in O, where the polygon includes its interior. We study the problem of computing the minimum-perimeter intersecting polygon and the minimum-area convex intersecting polygon for a given set O of objects. We present an FPTAS for both problems for the case where O is a set of possibly intersecting convex polygons in the plane of total complexity n.
Furthermore, we present an exact polynomial-time algorithm for the minimum-perimeter intersecting polygon for the case where O is a set of n possibly intersecting segments in the plane. So far, polynomial-time exact algorithms were only known for the minimum perimeter intersecting polygon of lines or of disjoint segments.
