All You Need To Know About Dog Ear Infections

Otitis externa, better known as a dog's ear infections, are one of the most common health issues that plague our canine compadres today. They are also particularly troublesome because, after one infection, your dog typically contracts more and more. Much of what will decide on the severity of the condition would be the dog ear infection treatment provided...

Errera deltahedron

The regular icosahedron hides many regular pentagons, surrounding each of its vertices. Cut it through the planes of two parallel pentagons, and you decompose it into two pyramids and a pentagonal antiprism. But what if you add a second antiprism, and glue the result back together? The result is a 17-vertex triangulated planar graph called the Errera...

Fast K-best optimization for graphs of bounded treewidth

Denis Kurz, a student of Petra Mutzel at Dortmund, visited Irvine last year. Since Kurz had already done some work on k shortest simple paths with Mutzel, that's what we worked on during his visit. Our paper is now online as a preprint: "K -Best Solutions of MSO Problems on Tree-Decomposable Graphs", arXiv:1703.02784. If you just want the k shortest...
