A near-linear area bound for drawing binary trees

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present several simple methods to construct planar, strictly upward, strongly order-preserving, straight-line drawings of any n-node binary tree. In particular, it is shown that O(n1+ε) area is always sufficient for an arbitrary constant ε > 0.
