Functions of Davenport-Schinzel sequences come up in components as diversified as robotic movement making plans, special effects and imaginative and prescient, and development matching. those sequences convey a few outstanding homes that cause them to a desirable topic for examine in combinatorial research. This ebook offers a finished learn of the combinatorial houses of Davenport-Schinzel sequences and their quite a few geometric purposes. those sequences are refined instruments for fixing difficulties in computational and combinatorial geometry. this primary e-book at the topic through of its major researchers should be an incredible source for college kids and execs in combinatorics, computational geometry, and similar fields.
