Abstract:

A k~extremal point set is a point set on the boundary of a k - sided rectilinear convex hull. Given a k - extrema1 point set of size n, we present an algorithm that computes a rectilinear Steiner minimal tree in time 0(k" rt ). For constant k, this algorithm runs in O(n) time and is asymptotically optimal, and for arbitrary k, the algorithm is the fastest known for this problem.
