Abstract

Hamiltonicity, book embeddability, and point-set embedda- bility of planar graphs are strictly related concepts. We exploit the interplay between these notions to describe colored sets of points and to design polynomial-time algorithms to embed k-colored planar graphs on these sets such that the resulting drawings have $\mathcal{O}(k)$ bends per edge.
