Combinatorics of Beacon-based Routing in Three Dimensions

A beacon is a point-like object which can be enabled to exert a magnetic pull on other point-like objects in space. Those objects then move towards the beacon in a greedy fashion until they are either stuck at an obstacle or reach the beacon's location. Beacons placed inside polyhedra can be used to route point-like objects from one location to another. A second use case is to cover a polyhedron such that every point-like object at an arbitrary location in the polyhedron can reach at least one of the beacons once the latter is activated. The notion of beacon-based routing and guarding was introduced by Biro et al. [FWCG'11] in 2011 and covered in detail by Biro in his PhD thesis [SUNY-SB'13], which focuses on the two-dimensional case. We extend Biro's result to three dimensions by considering beacon routing in polyhedra. We show that m+1/3 beacons are always sufficient and sometimes necessary to route between any pair of points in a given polyhedron P, where m is the number of tetrahedra in a tetrahedral decomposition of P. This is one of the first results that show that beacon routing is also possible in three dimensions.
