N2 - A simultaneous embedding of two vertex-labeled planar graphs on n vertices is possible if there exists a labeled point set of size n such that each of the graphs can be realized on that point set without crossings. We demonstrate how to simultaneously embed a path and an n-level planar graph and how to use radial embeddings for curvilinear simultaneous embeddings of a path and an outerplanar graph. We also show how to use star-shaped levels to find 2-bends per path edge simultaneous embeddings of a path and an outerplanar graph. All embedding algorithms run in O(n) time.
