ABSTRACT
The article illustrates a way of extending the range of twist-dissections of one polygon to another using special-purpose techniques. These include the technique of crosspointing strips to produce dissections with some swing hinges as well as a technique to replace swing hinges with twist hinges. The author also explains a way of producing a twist-hinged dissection using heptagon strip.

    There are six different classes of endomorphisms for a graph. The set of these endomorphisms always form a chain under set inclusions. The endomorphism type of a graph is a number between 0 and 31 indicating which classes coincide. In this paper, we characterize the endomorphisms types of all...

    A polygonal approximation technique using reverse polygonization is presented in this paper. This method rectifies the reverse polygonization in previous publications since it captures an efficient approximation independent to all initial points of curves. previous algorithms do not account for...

The generalized n-th Euler number H(k)n (u) which is called poly-Eulerian number will be generalized to H(k)n (u, a, b). The corresponding polynomial H(k)n (u, a, b)...
