Title: Algorithms for book crossing number problems
Authors: He, Hongmei
Issue Date: 2006
Publisher: © Hongmei He
Abstract: The crossing minimisation problem is of outmost importance in the field of graph drawings. The aesthetical properties and readability of graphs are heavily dependent on the number of crossings in a drawing. Moreover, crossing minimisation is the most important goal in the linear Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) circuit design and Quantum-dot Cellular Automata (QCA), since smaller crossing number means lower cost. Another application is for the problem of computing an mRNA sequence of maximal codon-wise similarity to a given mRNA (MRSO problem) in bioinformatics computing. [Continues.]
