Abstract??We investigate the lines tangent to four triangles in R3. By a construction, there can be as many as 62 tangents. We show that there are at most 162 connected components of tangents, and at most 156 if the triangles are disjoint. In addition, if the triangles are in (algebraic) general...

Tuza conjectured that if a simple graph G does not contain more than k pairwise edge-disjoint triangles, then there exists a set of at most 2 k edges that meets all triangles in G. It has been shown that this conjecture is true for planar graphs and the bound is sharp. In this paper, we...

A point P in the plane of triangle ABC is said to be an isoperimetric point if PA + PB + AB = PB + PC + BC = PC + PA + CA, and is said to be a point of equal detour if PA + PB - AB = PB + PC - BC = PC + PA - CA. Incorrect conditions for the existence and uniqueness of such points were given by...
