Vertex-removing flips (as well as edge-removing flips) play an important role for surface realizations of pseudotriangulations in three-space [2]. (a) (b) Fig. 3. Ambiguous geodesics interpretation Remarks. Instead of the vertex-removing flip, a different version – namely the exchanging flip in Figure 3(a) – has been commonly used. It also leads to a valid pseudo-triangulation (which now does contain the vertex v). However, care has to be taken not to misinterpret this version as in Figure 3(b), where the geodesic still lies inside the union of the two pseudo-triangles involved.

We recursively split (P, S) in a balanced way, by applying Theorem 4(2) from Section 5. This constructs a polygonal partition Π of P whose vertex set is S, and where all vertices are pointed. Π is obtained by introducing O(log n) edges internal to P in each Adapting (Pseudo)-Triangulations with a Near-Linear Number of Edge Flips 19 recursive step, and the number of recursive steps is O(log n) as well. By Lemma 4, O(n log2 n) exchanging flips are sufficient to make MPT 1 and MPT 2 contain all the edges of Π.
