Loci in the Plane

  • Antonio Caminha Muniz Neto
Part of the Problem Books in Mathematics book series (PBM)


The concept of locus, developed in this chapter, turns out to be essential for a deeper understanding of the synthetic method in Euclidean Geometry. After we have mastered that notion, we will be able to discuss various additional interesting properties of triangles and quadrilaterals, among which we highlight the problem of inscribing such polygons in a circle.
