**Interactions between geometry and graphs**

** Abstract**

I will describe some of the interactions between graphs and geometry, many of them with an algorithmic slant. In particular, we will discuss the properties of different classes of graphs defined using the intersection of geometric objects in the plane, and discuss classical optimization problems for such graphs. Finally, we will see how tools from computational geometry become useful for some algorithmic problems on graphs.
