# Isometric decomposition

Any progress on the following: Can a closed disc in the plane be partitioned into three disjoint sets which are pair-wise isometric, i.e. each set is an image of the others an isometry?

Perhaps by "plane" he means the Euclidean plane, with Euclidean metric. –  Joseph O'Rourke Jan 26 '13 at 14:52
@Joseph, thank you, I see "closed disc" and read "closed geodesic" --- I am getting older. –  Anton Petrunin Jan 26 '13 at 17:56
Is it a well known problem? Any references? –  Anton Petrunin Jan 26 '13 at 17:57
