  1. A simple linear time algorithm for embedding maximal planar graphs
  2. Planar embedding of hamiltonian graphs via efficient bipartation of circle graphs
  3. Extended circle graphs I
Chapter 8 of (1) "Generation of random (maximal) planar graphs" repo:

I started planar_graph_playground repo
in 4/2022, 28 years after I stopped similar project as University researcher.

This time as multi language library (JavaScript, Python and C++).

Related forum threads (100+, 25, 11 postings):
JavaScript graph library, for embedding and drawing planar graphs in 2D and/or sphere surface
C/C++(JavaScript) | planar graphs | draw fullerene in 2D/3D
Python(+JavaScript) graph library, for embedding and drawing planar graphs in 2D and/or sphere surface

C++ fastest, Python slowest, JavaScript allows for browser (2D graphics: SVG, 3D graphics: JSCAD):

Github repo contains first 30579 non-isomorphic fullerenes (C20..C70) and 1267 IPR (Independent Pentagon Region) fullerenes (I60..I100):

2D embedding demo online (SVG):

2D PostScript output as well:
(planar graphs are 4colorable, there is a linear time 5coloring algorithm, and even simpler linear time six_coloring(G))

Planar graph embedding onto sphere is not that easy. Just mapping plane embedding onto sphere and then using spring embedder might unravel (left) all vertices into same place (right):

Work in progress algorithm node.tetra.js OpenSCAD output:

JSCAD output:

The repo provides spherical edge, half vertex and vertex text, and spherical polygon modules/functions to generate sphere embedding OpenSCAD/JSCAD output.

Provides "vertex()" and "edge()" OpenSCAD modules for drawing graph onto cube[oid] as well, here visualization of "cube[oid] shortest surface path problem" solution, details: https://forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?p=2038730#p2038730 (orange/blue/yellow shortest paths pass through 3/4/5 faces, from single bottom face start point to top face target point)

Determine and visualize shortest paths between single point on bottom face and many points on top face of cuboid (in browser):
yet another simple graphics library (C, from 2007, now on gitghub):

Teaser video of a closing mouse trap; the whole closing is completed in 0.01s(!).
This is an animation from Raspberry v2 camera 640x75 video captured at 1007fps(!), played at 1fps.
When the mouse trap bar touches down, it hits the black piezo igniter, showing a spark in front:

Nearly ultrasonic speed (340m/s) 3Dprinted pellet shot with airgun.
Captured 5 times inflight by five 10000lm flashes of 2µs(!) duration each:

The front 10000lm led on side does not look too bright (each of its 100 led spots does light for 10µs in total).

180° M12 lens mounted reversed on Raspberry HQ camera as macro lens.
Results in microscope with 0.21µm/pixel(!), here pin point of lancet.
Measured length is 63.1px * 0.21µm/px = 13.251µm!

raspcatbot (Raspberry caterpillar robot) forum thread:

Slowmo of raspcatbot passing, 100× slower than real, only 1.14m/s here:

Bring your own light and monochrome global shutter camera / free running 1774rpm(!), 6.04m/s with 65mm wheel

On left 2.2" display, Raspberry Pi3A+ and L298N motor driver / with 330rpm motors steep uphill

front view video from 22.5km/h toy train …

… slightly faster than 5m/s (18km/h) raspcatbot target speed.
Just to get an idea of what autonomous line following at maximal speed will have to deal with.

1kg raspcatbot running (with steel wire rope) on 1.25m radius around screw in garage floor.
Speed 3.24m/s or 11.65km/h, kinetic energy 0.5*m*v² = 5.25 Joule, centripetal force m*v²/r = 8.4 kg*m/s²

I am a member of the German Ultramarathon Association (German-language) (my statistics)

For fun I registered as participant of South-German (Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Hesse and Saxony) 100km road race championship 1998 in Leipzig. There were 59 starters, 52 finishers, and I was 50th finisher (at age of 33). There were only 6 starters in male 30-34 age group, and only 3 of them were from South-Germany. One South-German starter did not finish -- therefore I got official silver medal from German Athletics Association(!), was "2nd best South-German 100km road race runner in age group 30-34 in 1998" … ;-)
[winner finished in 7:07h, I finished in 12:26h -- better than 8km/h on average]
