Abstract

In this paper we present an algorithm for enumerating without repetitions all the non-crossing generically minimally rigid bar-and-joint frameworks under edge constraints, which we call constrained non-crossing Laman frameworks, on a given set of n points in the plane. Our algorithm is based on the reverse search paradigm of Avis and Fukuda. It generates each output graph in O(n4) time and O(n) space, or, with a slightly different implementation, in O(n3) time and O(n2) space. In particular, we obtain that the set of all the constrained non-crossing Laman frameworks on a given point set is connected by flips which preserve the Laman property.
