Relaxed Spanners for Directed Disk Graphs

David Peleg & Liam Roditty
Let $(V,\delta)$ be a finite metric space, where $V$ is a set of $n$ points and $\delta$ is a distance function defined for these points. Assume that $(V,\delta)$ has a constant doubling dimension $d$ and assume that each point $p\in V$ has a disk of radius $r(p)$ around it. The disk graph that corresponds to $V$ and $r(\cdot)$ is a \emph{directed} graph $I(V,E,r)$, whose vertices are the points of $V$ and whose edge set includes...
