Conflict-Free Coloring of Points and Simple Regions in the Plane

We study conflict-free colorings, where the underlying set systems arise in geometry. Our main result is a general framework for conflict-free coloring of regions with low union complexity. A coloring of regions is conflict-free if for any covered point in the plane, there exists a region that covers it with a unique color (i.e., no other region covering this point has the same color). For example, we show that we can conflict-free color any family of n pseudo-discs with O(log n) colors.
