Augmenting the connectivity of geometric graphs. (English) Zbl 1147.05308
Summary: Let \(G\) be a connected plane geometric graph with \(n\) vertices. In this paper, we study bounds on the number of edges required to be added to \(G\) to obtain 2-vertex or 2-edge connected plane geometric graphs. In particular, we show that for \(G\) to become 2-edge connected, \(\frac {2n}{3}\) additional edges are required in some cases and that \(\frac {6n}{7}\) additional edges are always sufficient. For the special case of plane geometric trees, these bounds decrease to \(\frac{n}{2}\) and \(\frac{2n}{3}\), respectively.
