  1. Lambert quadrilateral

    Image Lambert quadrilateral.svg thumb right A Lambert quadrilateral In geometry , a Lambert quadrilateral , ref the alternate name Ibn al Haytham&ndash Lambert quadrilateral , has been suggested in Boris Abramovich Rozenfel d 1988 , A History of Non Euclidean Geometry Evolution of the Concept of a Geometric Space , p. 65. Springer, ISBN 0387964584, in honor of Ibn al Haytham ref named after Johann Heinrich Lambert , is a quadrilateral three of whose angles are right angles. Historically, the fourth angle of a Lambert quadrilateral was of considerable interest since if it could be shown to be a right angle, then the Euclidean parallel postulate could be proved as a theorem. It is now known that the type of the fourth angle depends upon the geometry in which the quadrilateral lives. In hyperbolic geometry the fourth angle is Acute angle acute , in Euclidean geometry it is a right angle and in elliptic geometry it is an obtuse angle . A Lambert quadrilateral can be constructed from a Saccheri quadrilateral by joining the midpoints of the base and summit of the Saccheri quadrilateral. This line segment is perpendicular to both the base and summit and so either half of the Saccheri quadrilateral is a Lambert quadrilateral.

  1. Saccheri quadrilateral

    Image Saccheri quads.svg thumb right Saccheri quadrilaterals A Saccheri quadrilateral is a quadrilateral with two equal sides perpendicular to the base. It is named after Giovanni Gerolamo Saccheri , who used it extensively in his book Euclides ab omni naevo vindicatus literally Euclid Freed of Every Flaw first published in 1733 , an attempt to prove the parallel postulate using the method Reductio ad absurdum . The first known consideration of the Saccheri quadrilateral was by Omar Khayyam in the late 11th century, and it may occasionally be referred to as the Khayyam Saccheri quadrilateral. ref name Rozenfeld For a Saccheri quadrilateral ABCD, the sides AD and BC also called legs are equal in length and perpendicular to the base AB. The top CD is called the summit or upper base and the angles at C and D are called the summit angles. The advantage of using Saccheri quardrilaterals when considering the parallel postulate is that they place the mutually exclusive options in very clear terms Are the summit angles right angles, obtuse angles, or acute angles? As it turns out, when the summit angles are right angles, this quadrilateral is equivalent to the statement expounded by Euclid s fifth postulate. When they are acute, this quadrilateral leads to hyperbolic geometry , and when they are obtuse, the quadrilateral leads to elliptical geometry . Saccheri himself, however, thought that both the obtuse and acute cases could be shown to be contradictory.

  1. Red Quadrilateral

    The Red Quadrilateral in Romanian Patrulaterul ro u was a term used by the media to describe the political alliance that supported the Romanian government between the 1992 and 1996 legislative elections. The Quadrilateral , informal at first, consisted of the Social Democratic Party Romania Democratic National Salvation Front FDSN, a major party, led by Adrian N stase , which had supported Ion Iliescu s bid for presidency , the nationalist Romanian National Unity Party PUNR of Gheorghe Funar and the Greater Romania Party at that time national communist of Corneliu Vadim Tudor , and the neo communist Socialist Party of Labour of Communist Romania Ceau escu era Prime Minister Ilie Verde . As Parliament support for the FDSN renamed Party of the Social Democracy in Romania or PDSR in 1993 government was dwindling, the alliance was made official in January 1995. Only the PDSR and the PUNR were awarded government portfolios, the other two only receiving lower level positions in the government. ref http books?id JrWr2xnZPCkC&pg PA75&lpg PA75&dq Partidul Socialist al Muncii romania socialist&source bl&ots MCObWLSulb&sig mRfZwpUdLxgxksxvDDEAYruXdGw&hl en&ei x0poSq2PGMjdsgbh PCFBw&sa X&oi book result&ct result&resnum 8 ref The coalition supported President Ion Iliescu and Prime Minister Nicolae V c roiu .

  1. Japanese theorem for cyclic quadrilaterals

    In geometry , the Japanese theorem states that the centers of the incircle s of certain triangles inside a cyclic quadrilateral are vertices of a rectangle. Triangulating an arbitrary concyclic quadrilateral by its diagonals yields four overlapping triangles each diagonal creates two triangles . The centers of the incircles of those triangles form a rectangle. Image Japanese theorem 2.svg center 600px Specifically, let math square ABCD math be an arbitrary concyclic quadrilateral and let be math M 1,M 2,M 3,M 4 math the incenters of the triangles math triangle ABD, triangle ABC, triangle BCD, triangle ACD math . Then the quadrilateral formed by math M 1,M 2,M 3,M 4 math is a rectangle. Note that this theorem is easily extended to prove the Japanese theorem for cyclic polygons . To prove the quadrilateral case, simply construct the parallelogram tangent to the corners of the constructed rectangle, with sides parallel to the diagonals of the quadrilateral. The construction shows that the parallelogram is a rhombus, which is equivalent to showing that the sums of the radii of the incircles tangent to each diagonal are equal. The quadrilateral case immediately proves the general case by induction on the set of triangulating partitions of a general polygon.

Points are the vertices of a cyclic quadrilateral A circumscribed circle circle can be drawn around any triangle and through its vertices. A quadrilateral that can be inscribed inside a circle is said to be a cyclic quadrilateral . In general the centre O of a circle on which points P and Q lie must be such that OP and OQ are equal distances. Therefore O must lie on the perpendicular bisector of the line segment PQ . For n distinct points there are n n &minus 1 2 such lines to draw, and the concyclic condition is that they all meet in a single point, the centre O . A quadrilateral in which the four vertices are concyclic is called a cyclic quadrilateral . More generally, a polygon in which all vertices are concyclic is called a cyclic polygon . Three line mathematics noncollinear points A , B , and C are concyclic to a single circle. Four different points A , B , C , and D are cyclic if and only if see second diagram math alpha equiv angle CAD angle CBD. , math This condition is the inscribed angle theorem , and is equivalent to the condition that opposite angles in the quadrilateral be supplementary.

  1. Brahmagupta's formula

    In Euclidean geometry , Brahmagupta s formula finds the area of any quadrilateral given the lengths of the sides and some of the angles. In its most common form, it yields the area of quadrilaterals that can be inscribed in a circle . Basic form In its basic and easiest to remember form, Brahmagupta s formula gives the area K of a cyclic quadrilateral whose sides have lengths a , b , c , d as math K sqrt s a s b s c s d math where s , the semiperimeter , is math s frac a b c d 2 cdot math math s a frac a b c d 2 math math s b frac a b c d 2 math math s c frac a b c d 2 math math s d frac a b c d 2 math This formula generalizes Heron s formula for the area of a triangle . A triangle may be regarded as a quadrilateral with one side of length zero. From this perspective, as d approaches zero, a cyclic quadrilateral converges into a cyclic triangle all triangles are cyclic , and Brahmagupta s formula converges into Heron s formula. The assertion that the area of the quadrilateral is given by Brahmagupta ... to the sides, although if the quadrilateral does not contain the center, the altitude to the longest ... quadrilateral Area of math triangle ADB math Area of math triangle BDC math math frac 1 2 pq sin A frac 1 2 rs sin C. math But since math ABCD math is a cyclic quadrilateral, math angle DAB 180 circ ... the measures of two opposite angles of the quadrilateral math K sqrt s a s b s c s d abcd cos ... of a cyclic quadrilateral is the maximum possible area for any quadrilateral with the given ... of cyclic quadrilateral s and ultimately of inscribed angle s that opposite angles of a quadrilateral sum to 180 .
