Terminal-Pairability in Complete Graphs

We investigate terminal-pairability properties of complete graphs and improve the known bounds in two open problems. We prove that the complete graph $K_n$ on $n$ vertices is terminal-pairable if the maximum degree $\Delta$ of the corresponding …

Partitioning orthogonal polygons into at most 8-vertex pieces, with application to an art gallery theorem

We prove that every simply connected orthogonal polygon of $n$ vertices can be partitioned into $\lfloor\frac{3n+4}{16}\rfloor$ (simply connected) orthogonal polygons of at most 8 vertices. It yields a new and shorter proof of the theorem of A. …
