Abstract:
The empty space around n disjoint line segments in the plane can be partitioned into n + 1 convex faces by extending the segments in some order. The dual graph of such a partition is the plane graph whose vertices correspond to the n + 1 convex faces, and every segment endpoint corresponds to an edge between the two incident faces on opposite sides of the segment. We construct, for every set of n disjoint line segments in the plane, a convex partition whose dual graph is 2-edge connected.
