In 1994 Grünbaum showed that, given a point set S in
ℝ3, it is always possible to construct a polyhedron whose
vertices are exactly S. Such a polyhedron is called a
polyhedronization of S. Agarwal et al. extended this work in
2008 by showing that there always exists a polyhedronization that can be
decomposed into a union of tetrahedra (tetrahedralizable). In the same
work they introduced the notion of a serpentine polyhedronization for
which the dual of its tetrahedralization is a chain. In this work we present a
randomized algorithm running in
O(n log6 n) expected time that
constructs a serpentine polyhedronization that has vertices with degree at
most 7, answering an open question by Agarwal et al.
