A(u), A(v ), A(w) (Blue super nodes) are pairwise disjoint Proof. Each blue node is only 8∆ in diameter (see diagram) Yet, they each contain one of u, v, w , any two of which are > Claim. 16∆ apart A(v1 ), A(v2 ), A(v3 ) (Red super nodes) are pairwise disjoint A(v1 ), A(v2 ), A(v3 ) are separated by the decomposition Each of h1 , h2 , h3 is > 4∆ away from A(v2 ) Thus A(v2 ) ∩ T3 = ∅ and a fortiori A(v2 ) ∩ A(v3 ) = ∅ Same argument applies to A(v1 ) with respect to either of A(v2 ) and A(v3 ) Proof. Finally, similar arguments will show that any red super node is disjoint from any blue super node CSE 254 - Metric Embeddings - Winter 2007 – p. 16/2 Super nodes 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 v2 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111 0000000000 1111111111111111111111111 0000000000000000000000000 1111111111 t’1 0000000000 t’3 t’2 1111111111111111111111111 0000000000000000000000000 111111111111111111111111111 000000000000000000000000000 111111111111111111111 000000000000000000000 111111111111111111111111...
