Summary: Euclidean Spanners: Short, Thin, and Lanky

Abstract
Euclidean spanners are important data structures
in geometric algorithm design, because they pro-
vide a means of approximating the complete Eu-
clidean graph with only O(n) edges, so that the
shortest path length between each pair of points is
not more than a constant factor longer than the
Euclidean distance between the points. In many
applications of spanners, it is important that the
spanner possess a number of additional properties:
low total edge weight, bounded degree, and low
diameter. Existing research on spanners has con-
sidered one property or the other. We show that it
is possible to build spanners in optimal O(nlogn)
time and O(n) space that achieve optimal or near
optimal tradeo s between all combinations of these
