Abstract

Let S be a set of n points in the plane in general position such that the integers 1,2,...,n are assigned to the points bijectively. Set h be an integer with 1≤h<n(n+1)/2. In this paper we consider the problem of finding two vertex-disjoint simple geometric paths consisting of all points of S such that the sum of labels of the points in one path is equal to h and the paths have as few crossings as possible. We prove that there exists such a pair of paths with at most two crossings between them.
