A new drawing for simple Venn diagrams based on algebraic construction

Arnaud Bannier, Nicolas Bodin


Venn diagrams are used to display all relations between a finite number of sets. Recent researches in this domain concern the mathematical aspects of these constructions, but are not directed towards the readability of the diagram. This article presents a new way to draw easy-to-read Venn diagrams, in which each region tends to be drawn with the same size when the number of sets grows, and tends to draw a grid. Finally, using linear algebra, we prove that this construction gives a simple Venn diagram for any number of sets.
