Abstract Ceva’s theorem, which concerns triangles, is a central result of post-Euclidean plane geometry. The three-dimensional generalization of a triangle is a tetrahedron, and the n-dimensional generalization of these is an n-simplex. We extend Ceva’s theorem to n-simplices and in doing so illustrate the considerations and choices that can be made in generalizing from plane geometry to high-dimensional geometries.
