Abstract
We investigate the problem of constructing spanners for a given set of points that are tolerant for edge/vertex faults. Let S be a set of \$n\$ points in the d-dimensional space and let k be an integer number. A k-edge/vertex fault tolerant spanner for S has the property that after the deletion of k arbitrary edges/vertices each pair of points in the remaining graph is still connected by a short path.<br><br>Recently it was shown that for each set S of n points there exists a k-edge/vertex fault tolerant spanner with O(k^2 n) edges which can be constructed in O(n log n + k^2 n) time. Furthermore, it was shown that for each set S of n points there exists a k-edge/vertex fault tolerant spanner whose degree is bouned by O(c^k+1) for some constant c.<br><br>Our first contribution is a construction of a k-vertex fault tolerant spanner with O(kn) edges which is a tight bound. The computation takes O(n log^d-1 n + k n log log n) time. Then we show that the same k-vertex fault tolerant spanner is also k-edge fault tolerant. Thereafter, we construct a k-vertex fault tolerant spanner with O(k^2 n) edges whose degree is bounded by O(k^2). Finally, we give a more natural but stronger definition of k-edge fault tolerance which not necessarily can be satisfied if one allows only simple edges between the points of S. We investigate the question whether Steiner points help. We answer this question affirmatively and prove Theta(kn) bounds on the number of Steiner points and on the number of edges in such spanners.
