Inductive Constructions in the Analysis of Two-Dimensional Rigid Structures

Bill Jackson, Tibor Jordán

Published in:
6th Japanese Hungarian symposium on discrete mathematics and its applications, Budapest, May 2009, 131-140.


We give an overview of how inductive constructions of certain families of graphs can be used to characterize and analyze the generic behaviour of two-dimensional frameworks with respect to rigidity and global rigidity.
We also give a different proof for (a slightly stronger version of) a result of Servatius and Whiteley on the construction of minimally rigid mixed graphs.
