### Homeomorphisms of the sphere mapping a geodesic triangulation to another one

Consider the standard Riemannian 2-sphere $S$, equipped with a geodesic triangulation $T$. Let $L(S,T)$ be the space of homeomorphisms of $S$ which map
$T$ to a geodesic triangulation. What is the ...

### Proving the Gauss-Bonnet theorem for embedded surfaces using triangulations

I heard this really neat elementary proof of the "Gauss-Bonnet Theorem" :
Let $S$ be a surface embedded in $\mathbb{R}^3$. Now take a triangulation of that surface, and approximate the surface with a ...

### Does this iterated Delaunay triangulation process always “explode”?

Let $P$ be a set of three noncollinear points in $\mathbb{R}^2$.
Iteratively form the
Delaunay triangulation
$\cal T$ of $P$, and then
augment $P$ by the circumcircle centers of all triangles in $\...

### Euclidean triangulation of the plane with degree 7 at each vertex.

Hyperbolic plane has a beautiful triangulation by congruent hyperbolic triangles where all the vertices of the triangulation have degree 7, this is of course not possible in the euclidean plane, even ...
