Mobile vs. point guards

We study the problem of guarding orthogonal art galleries with horizontal mobile guards (alternatively, vertical) and point guards, using "rectangular vision". We prove a sharp bound on the minimum number of point guards required to cover the gallery …

Mobile vs. point guards in orthogonal art gallery theorems

Our results are concerned with art gallery theorems on orthogonal polygons. We prove that an n-vertex orthogonal polygon can be partitioned into $\lfloor\frac{3n+4}{16}\rfloor$ at most 8-vertex pieces. This directly implies Aggarwal's theorem, namely …

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. …
