Pointed binary encompassing trees: Simple and optimal

For n disjoint line segments in the plane we construct in optimal O (n log n) time and linear space an encompassing tree of maximum degree three such that at every vertex v all edges of the tree that are incident to v lie in a halfplane bounded by the line through the input segment which v is an endpoint of. In particular, this tree is pointed since every vertex has an incident angle greater than π. Such a pointed binary tree can be augmented to a minimum pseudo-triangulation. It follows that every set of disjoint line segments in the plane has a constrained minimum pseudo-triangulation whose maximum vertex degree is bounded by a constant.
