This is a crosspost from math.stackexchange, where the question did not find an answer. Given a circle and two points $A$, $B$ in the plane, how do I find an ellipse with focal points $A$ and $B$ ...
I am looking for an elementary derivation of the formula for the area of a geodesic triangle lying in a surface of constant curvature $\kappa$, depending on the angles and side length. Of course, the ...
Is it possible to construct the midpoint of a segment in the hyperbolic plane using the set square only? With the set square one can draw the line through the given two points and drop the ...
Could anyone find the solution for this generalization for Dido problem: given a big circle island with radius $R$ and line with fixed length $l << R$ we want to find the maximal area bounded by ...
I am looking for an attractive, but rigorous definition of area; say in Euclidean plane. Probably there is no short definition. It is OK to make it even longer, but can it be built from useful parts ...
see title. assume we are given two parallelograms in the plane. how can I check if the intersection is nonempty? note that I do not need to actually find the intersection.
Let P be a convex polygon with area A(P), and to each side of P, attach the largest area triangle possible that lies entirely within P. Must the sum S(P) of the areas of these triangles always satisfy ...
