Isometric Diamond Subgraphs

  • David Eppstein
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5417)


We test in polynomial time whether a graph embeds in a distance-preserving way into the hexagonal tiling, the three-dimensional diamond structure, or analogous higher-dimensional structures.
