Abstract
High­performance rendering engines in computer graphics are often pipelined, and their
speed is bounded by the rate at which triangulation data can be sent into the machine. To
reduce the data rate, it is desirable to order the triangles so that consecutive triangles share
a face, meaning that only one additional vertex need be transmitted to describe each triangle.
Such an ordering exists if and only if the dual graph of the triangulation contains a Hamiltonian
path.
In this paper, we consider several problems concerning triangulations with Hamiltonian
duals. Specifically, we
ffl Show that any set of n points in the plane has a Hamiltonian triangulation, and give two
optimal \Theta(n log n) algorithms for constructing such a triangulation. We have implemented
