Disputation of Myroslav Kryven10/02/2020
Myroslav Kryven has defended his doctoral thesis entitled "Optimizing Crossings in Circular-Arc Drawings and Circular Layouts" in a public disputation on October 2.
In his thesis Myroslav Kryven studied visualizations of abstract networks called graphs. Most graphs require crossings to be drawn. The more crossings a drawing has, the more difficult it is to perceive by a human. Therefore, graphs that can be drawn with few crossings are of particular interest. Such graphs are called beyond-planar graphs. Myroslav defined and studied different beyond-planar graph classes and developed algorithms for their recognition and visualization.
Congratulations, Myroslav, for the last successful step towards the Ph.D.!
