Engineering Art Galleries


The Art Gallery Problem (AGP) is one of the most well-known problems in Computational Geometry (CG), with a rich history in the study of algorithms, complexity, and variants. Recently there has been a surge in experimental work on the problem. In this survey, we describe this work, show the chronology of developments, and compare current algorithms, including two unpublished versions, in an exhaustive experiment. Furthermore, we show what core algorithmic ingredients have led to recent successes.
