    NNT does that a lot – remove links. I couldn’t find another just now. Likely he’s updating and will repost shortly, else it will be published as a paper at ssrn http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/cf_dev/AbsByAuth.cfm?per_id=475810 Meanwhile you could get the gist of it here in his letter to Stewart Brand http://longplayer.org/letters/to-stewart-brand/ Best, JohnH

Counterexample for your conjecture:(Assuming that x is horizontal and increasing right, and y is vertical increasing down.)I suspect, though, that every time you subtract the next greedy quad from the current figure, you reduce (horizontal edges) + (total genus) (connected components) by at least 1.
