Graphs That Admit Polyline Drawings with Few Crossing Angles
We consider graphs that admit polyline drawings where all crossings occur at the same angle alpha is an element of (0, pi/2]. We prove that every graph on n vertices that admits such a polyline drawing with at most two bends per edge has O(n) edges. This result remains true when each crossing occurs at an angle from a small set of angles. We also provide several extensions that might be of independent interest.
