Special Issue: Selected Papers from the 21st Annual International Symposium on Algorithms and Computation by O. Cheong and Y. OkamotoNo Access


    We show that the Yao graph Y4 in the L2 metric is a spanner with stretch factor . Enroute to this, we also show that the Yao graph in the L metric is a plane spanner with stretch factor 8.
