Title: Objects That Cannot Be Taken Apart With Two Hands
Author: Snoeyink J.
Stolfi J.
Abstract: It has been conjectured that every configuration C of convex objects in 3-space with disjoint interiors can be taken apart by translation with two hands: that is, some proper subset of C can be translated to infinity without disturbing its complement. We show that the conjecture holds for five or fewer objects and give a counterexample with six objects. We extend the counterexample to a configuration that cannot be taken apart with two hands using arbitrary isometries (rigid motions). © 1994 Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
