Einthoven's triangle an imaginary equilateral triangle with the heart at its center, formed by the axes of the three bipolar limb leads.
Einthoven's triangle. Bipolar limb leads I, II, and III form Einthoven's triangle. Other standard positions for electrocardiographic leads are the augmented unipolar leads: aVR (right arm), aVL (left arm), and aVF (left leg). From Polaski and Tatro, 1996.
triangle of elbow a triangular area on the front of the elbow, bounded by the brachioradial muscle on the outside and the round pronator muscle inside, with the base toward the humerus.
triangle of election superior carotid triangle.
facial triangle a triangular area whose points are the basion and the alveolar and nasal points.
femoral triangle the area formed superiorly by the inguinal ligament, laterally by the sartorius muscle, and medially by the adductor longus muscle; called also Scarpa's triangle.
infraclavicular triangle that formed by the clavicle above, the upper border of the greater pectoral muscle on the inside, and the anterior border of the deltoid muscle on the outside.
inguinal triangle the triangular area bounded by the inner edge of the sartorius muscle, the inguinal ligament, and the outer edge of the long adductor muscle.
lumbocostoabdominal triangle that lying between the external oblique muscle of the abdomen, the posterior inferior serratus muscle, the erector muscle of the spine, and the internal oblique muscle of the abdomen.
occipital triangle the area bounded by the sternocleidomastoid muscle in front, the trapezius muscle behind, and the omohyoid muscle below.

In the green circle that [f.sub.2] is the center of the circle and r is the corresponding radius, the points [h.sub.1], [h.sub.2] and [h.sub.4] ([member of] D and their accessed counts [greater than or equal to] 50) and the point [f.sub.2] are used to form a polygon. Then the proposed algorithm computes the polygon centroid [j.sub.1] (noises are added to [j.sub.1] to generate a new point [g.sub.1]).

Since 1984, Polygon has worked with thousands of jewelers and gem & jewelry business owners to help them grow.
At Polygon (and most other computer animation studios), animators use keyframing to specify the key points of animation manually.
The i th edge of the polygon is denoted as [e.sub.i] = {P(:, i), P(:, (i mod n) +1)} .
Clearly [6,1] and [6,5] produce a regular hexagon, but [6,2], [6,3] and [6,4] do not produce regular star polygons. The next regular star polygons are [7,2] and [7,3], while the remaining [7,k] should be easily classified by your students.
* Suggested answer: No additional work required here, the sides of the polygon represent the rays of the angle you want to measure.
A class [C.sup.M-2] closed curve (of degree M - 1) consisting of n + 1 curve segments [P.sub.i](t), i = 0, 1, ..., n, with a curve defining polygon determined by the n+1 position vectors [Q.sub.0], [Q.sub.1], ..., [Q.sub.n] in Figure 5 can be expressed by the following function:
In our implementation, all possible NFPs are computed in a preprocessing level applying the Minkowski sum [31] method and polygon decomposition is based on [32].
In this paper, we are interested in finding a maximum clique in the visibility graph of a polygon. A clique is a complete subgraph.
