Abstract:

Given a set of k-colored points in the plane, we consider the problem of finding k trees such that each tree connects all points of one color class, no two trees cross, and the total edge length of the trees is minimized. For k=1, this is the well-known Euclidean Steiner tree problem. For general k, a -approximation algorithm is known, where ρ≤1.21 is the Steiner ratio.

We present a PTAS for k=2, a (5/3+ε)-approximation for k=3, and two approximation algorithms for general k, with ratios O(√n log k) and k+ε.
