Abstract.It is well known that the incenter of a Euclidean triangle lies on its Euler line connecting the centroid and the circumcenter if and only if the triangle is isosceles. The analogue of this result in higher dimensions is studied for orthocentric simplices. It is shown that the incenter of an orthocentric simplex of any dimension lies on its Euler line if and only if this simplex can be expressed as the join of two regular simplices, with all edges connecting the two corresponding… Expand
On the Circumradius of a Special Class of n-Simplices
An n-simplex is called circumscriptible (or edge-incentric) if there is a sphere which is tangent to all its n(n + 1)/2 edges. We obtain a closed formula for the radius of the circumscribed sphere ofExpand
The Pons Asinorum in higher dimensions
The Pons Asinorum , or the Bridge of Asses , refers to Proposition 5 of Book I of Euclid’s Elements . This proposition and its converse, Proposition 6, state that two sides of a triangle are equal ifExpand
Concurrency of the altitudes of a triangle
Of all the traditional (or Greek) centers of a triangle, the orthocenter (i.e., the point of concurrence of the altitudes) is probably the one that attracted the most of attention. This may be due toExpand
Monge points, Euler lines, and Feuerbach spheres in Minkowski spaces
It is surprising, but an established fact that the field of Elementary Geometry referring to normed spaces (= Minkowski spaces) is not a systematically developed discipline. There are many naturalExpand
The Chaotic Behavior of the Sequence of Pedal Simplices
Abstract.In this paper, we explore possible higher-dimensional analogues for the well known chaotic behavior of the sequence of pedal triangles of a given triangle. We start with an orthocentricExpand
The open mouth theorem, or the scissors lemma, for orthocentric tetrahedra
Propositions 24 and 25 of Book I of Euclid’s Elements state the fairly obvious fact that if an angle in a triangle is increased (without changing the lengths of its arms), then the length of theExpand
The sum of measures of the angles of a simplex
Motivated by the facts that the sum of the angles of a triangle is constant and that the sum of the contents of the corner angles of a tetrahedron is not, we explore the, seemingly unlikely,Expand
The pons asinorum and related theorems for tetrahedra
Proposition 5 of Book I of Euclid’s Elements, better known as the Pons Asinorum or the Bridge of Asses, and its converse, Proposition 6, state that two sides of a triangle are equal if and only ifExpand
Kites as the only doubly special simplices
In this paper, the families of orthocentric, circumscriptible, isodynamic, and isogonic (or rather, tetra-isogonic) $$d$$d-simplices, $$d \ge 3$$d≥3, are considered, and it is proved that theExpand

Orthocentric simplices and their centers
A simplex is said to be orthocentric if its altitudes intersect in a common point, called its orthocenter. In this paper it is proved that if any two of the traditional centers of an orthocentricExpand
