  Triangle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Often they are constructed by finding three lines associated in a symmetrical way with the three sides (or vertices) and then proving that the three lines meet in a single point: an important tool for proving the existence of these is Ceva's theorem, which gives a criterion for determining when three such lines are concurrent.
A perpendicular bisector of a triangle is a straight line passing through the midpoint of a side and being perpendicular to it, i.e.
Euler's line is a straight line through the centroid (orange), orthocenter (blue), circumcenter (green) and center of the nine-point circle (red).

An incenter of a triangle is the point of concurrency of the angle bisectors of the triangle.
An altitude of a triangle is a perpendicular segment from a vertex to the line containing the side opposite that vertex.
The medians of a triangle are concurrent at a point that is two thirds the distance from each vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side.

 Concurrent Pipelines ABAS
Concurrent pipelines are needed when multiple streams are co-located on a single processor and where there are real-time requirements associated with the production of final outputs.
The purpose of the Concurrent Pipelines ABAS is to provide a reasoning framework so that the performance consequences of architectural decisions are understood at design time.
For the Concurrent Pipelines ABAS, we consider a single processor on which multiple processes reside and are organized into sequences.

 Xah: Introduction to Real Projective Plane
Four lines p,q,r,s, of which no three are concurrent, are the sides of a complete quadrilateral pqrs, of which the six vertices are the points q*r, p*s, r*p, q*s, p*q, r*s.
Four concurrent lines a,b,c,d, are said to form a harmonic set if there is a quadrilateral of which two opoosite vertices lies on a and two other opposite vertices on b, while the remaining vertices lie on c and d.
The points on a line are said to form a range, especially when we regard them as the possible positions of a variable point X (which runs along the line).

 (WO/2000/014513) SPECKLE MITIGATION FOR COHERENT DETECTION EMPLOYING A WIDE BAND SIGNAL   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The concurrent independent measurements are obtained by use of multiple receiving apertures and/or by transmission of a laser signal having multiple carrier spectral lines so far apart that each carrier component of the laser signal permits performance of a measurement independent of measurements performed by laser signals at other carrier frequencies.
This provides for the pulse train a set of sinusoidal components at line frequencies wherein the sinusoidal components are synchronized, as distinguished from randomly occurring, and the spacing of the spectral lines is large enough to provide for a decorrelation of the speckled patterns produced by each of the sinusoidal components.
The vertical line of the image plane 40 also serves to measure distance off of boresight of the telescope 30, and the horizontal line, axis 42, also serves as a measure of intensity of radiation received at the image plane 40.

Straight lines incident with a plane (coplanar lines) and passing through a common point are said to be concurrent lines and the set of all such concurrent coplanar lines is called the pencil.
The double ratio of four lines of a pencil is equal to the corresponding double ratio of four points which are sections of the above mentioned four lines with a transversal not incident with the base of the pencil.
Straight lines that form the congruence or the complex are called the lines or rays of the congruence or the complex.

 Pappus's hexagon theorem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pappus's hexagon theorem (attributed to Pappus of Alexandria) states that given one set of collinear points A, B, C, and another set of collinear points a, b, c, then the intersection points x, y, z of line pairs Ab and aB, Ac and aC, Bc and bC are collinear.
The dual of this theorem states that given one set of concurrent lines A, B, C, and another set of concurrent lines a, b, c, then the lines x, y, z defined by pairs of points resulting from pairs of intersections A∩b and a∩B, A∩c and a∩C, B∩c and b∩C are concurrent.
A generalization of this theorem is Pascal's theorem, which was discovered by Blaise Pascal at the age of 16.

 Stylized demonstration of the dual of Pappus' theorem
Indeed, that dual theorem asserts that for two triplets of concurrent lines, the joints of some of their intersections concur.
So indeed in the applet we have two triplets of concurrent lines and its easy to verify that the joints are the same in both theorems.
Furthermore, in terms of projective geometry the "general" theorem and the one illustrated by the applet are equivalent, for it's possible to projectively transform a "general" configuration into the one of two sets of parallel lines with the lines from two different triplets perpendicular.

 Pencil of lines   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
, that is, a set of lines passing through the same point, is a one-dimensional projective space called a pencil of lines.
That the space is one-dimensional is the obvious result of applying the principle of duality: a set of concurrent lines is the same as a set of collinear points.
We will say no more about a pencil of lines other than to mention that it exists and that it has several applications in computer vision.

original figures corresponds of course a parallel line in the other; moreover, it is seen that concurrent lines in either figure correspond to lines forming a closed polygon in the other.
An exception to the general statement occurs when the six lines are such that they are possible lines of action of a system of six forces in equilibrium; they are then said to be in involution.
The total work done by two concurrent forces acting on a particle, or on a rigid body, in any infinitely small displacement, is equal to the work of their resultant.

 CONCURRENT ENGINEERING
Of all these, we have chosen that of Concurrent Engineering as this is the one that evidences most clearly the collective effort, the cooperation involved between all the agents intervening in the process.
Concurrent Engineering is a new approach, in full development, incorporating a wide variety of new concepts and project management methods.
The goals Concurrent Engineering attempts to meet are: a reduction of the time-to-market span, adaptation of the product to the needs or preferences of the users, efficient and low-cost maintenance, a given level of quality, all of that at a reasonable cost.

 Budget Development System -- Staff Percentages
The percent on the funding line is the percent of the employee's total pay this line is paying.
If there are other pay lines, however, which contribute to that regular pay for that same time period, then the percent for ALL the pay lines for that same time period must add up to no more than 100%.
Using a generic account, rather than leaving out the pay line altogether, will help you calculate the percent time/effort on all of the pay lines correctly, and make sure that you make the person " whole" when figuring out all of the sources of their pay.

 Cut The Knot!
Divide an angle into n equal parts with (n-1) lines, remove all the lines but the extreme two - the ones which are next to the sides of a given triangle.

In that framework, concurrency of the lines PU, QV, RW is deduced from a result in Analytic Geometry illustrated by the following applet.

 Streamed Lines: Branching Patterns for Parallel Software Development
Streamed Lines is a pattern language that attempts to provide at least a partial answer to this question by presenting branching and merging patterns for decomposing a project's workflow into separate lines of development, and then later recomposing these lines back into the main workstream.
In general, when a branch corresponds to a line of development containing (or intended for) multiple sets of logical changes, we refer to the branch as a codeline, even though it need not be limited to source-code artifacts.
Branches and codelines are indicated with solid lines, whereas merges and propagations are indicated with dashed lines.
