How to morph a tree on a small grid
Fabrizio Frati
Roma Tre University

In this talk we deal with planar morphs between straight-line planar grid drawings of trees. A morph consists of a sequence of morphing steps, where in a morphing step vertices move along straight-line trajectories at constant speed. We show how to construct planar morphs that simultaneously achieve a reduced number of morphing steps and a polynomially-bounded resolution.
