(LaTeX) Abstract:
Given an arbitrary polygon with $n$ vertices, we wish to partition it
into $p$ connected pieces of given areas. The problem is motivated by a
robotics application in which the polygon is a workspace that is to be
divided among $p$ robots performing a terrain-covering task. We show that
finding an area partitioning with minimal cut length is NP-hard in the number
of pieces and that it is even hard to approximate to within any factor that
is independent of the shape of the polygon.
We then present a simple $O(pn)$-time algorithm that produces
non-optimal, but often quite reasonable, area partitionings for arbitrary
polygons.
