On this page we provide circle representations for arrangements of pseudocircles. The files are in text format and each line contains a tuple, consisting of Some of the "radius" values r in our data come with a negative sign (we describe circles via the equation $x^2+y^2 = r^2$ and only care about the absolute values of x,y,r).

Intersecting arrangements

For $n=4$ we provide realizations for all arrangements of pseudocircles. For $n=5$ we provide realizations for all 277 realizable intersecting arrangements (there are 278 intersecting arrangements and one of which is provable not circularizable). For $n=6$ we provide realizations for all 3128 realizable intersecting digonfree arrangements (there are 3131 intersecting digonfree arrangements and three of which are proveable not circularizable).

Biconnected arrangements

It is easy to see, that circles corresponding to cut-vertices of the intersection graph of a connected arrangement can be easily inserted (iteratively) after all biconnected components of the graph are realized. In contrary, every minimal non-circularizable arrangement of pseudocircles has a biconnected intersection graph. Therefore, we provide circle representations for "biconnected" arrangements. Note that the intersection graph of an intersecting arrangement is the complete graph.

Since arrangements with a biconnected intersection graph admit a dual graph with no multiple edges, we represent them using "model 1"; see this page. The database of biconnected arrangements of $n=5$ (model 1 encoded) is available here:

Besides the provided realizations, we by now also have realized arrangements These files are available on demand.
