A QPTAS for the Base of the Number of CrossingFree Structures on a Planar Point Set
(2015) 42nd International Colloquium, ICALP 2015 In Automata, Languages, and Programming/Lecture notes in computer science 9134. p.785796 Abstract
 The number of triangulations of a planar n point set S is known to be c^n, where the base c lies between 2.43 and 30. Similarly, the number of spanning trees on S is known to be d^n, where the base d lies between 6.75 and 141.07. The fastest known algorithm for counting triangulations of S runs in O^∗(2^n) time while that for counting spanning trees runs in O^∗(7.125^n) time. The fastest known arbitrarily close approximation algorithms for the base of the number of triangulations of S and the base of the number of spanning trees of S, respectively, run in time subexponential in n. We present the first quasipolynomial approximation schemes for the base of the number of triangulations of S and the base of the number of spanning trees on S,... (More)
