  Triangle - Gurupedia
A triangle is one of the basic shapes of geometry: a two-dimensional figure with three vertices and three sides which are straight line segments.
A perpendicular bisector of a triangle is a straight line passing through the midpoint of a side and being perpendicular to it, i.e.
The area S of a triangle is S = ½bh, where b is the length of any side of the triangle (the base) and h (the altitude) is the perpendicular distance between the base and the vertex not on the base.

 Triangle Summary
Triangles are among the most important objects studied in mathematics owing to the rich mathematical theory built up around them in Euclidean geometry and trigonometry, and also to their applicability in such areas as astronomy, architecture, engineering, physics, navigation, and surveying.
Trigonometry literally means "triangle measurement" and is the study of the properties of triangles and their ramifications in both pure and applied mathematics.
The triangle is the simplest polygon because it is the closed figure having the fewest number of angles and sides.

 Amit's Thoughts on Grids
A big disadvantage of triangle maps, aside from unfamiliarity, is the large perimeter and small area (the opposite of a hexagon).
The F,E,V of squares is 1,2,1; of hexagons, 1,3,2; of triangles 2,3,1.
To determine which face the world point is in, consider the edge that divides the two triangles inside each sheared square; this is labeled E. If your point is on the left of the line, the point is in the L face; if on the right, the point is in the R face.

 Circle - ExampleProblems.com
Imagine a regular hexagon (six-sided figure) divided into equal triangles, with their apices at the center of the hexagon.
The area of the hexagon may be found by the formula for triangle area by adding up the lengths of all the triangle bases (on the exterior of the hexagon), multiplying by the height of the triangles (distance from the middle of the base to the center) and dividing by two.
As a regular polygon with more and more sides is divided into triangles and the area calculated from this, the area becomes closer and closer to the area of a circle.

The three medians intersect in the centroid or center of mass and two-thirds of the length of median is between the vertex and the while one-third is between the centroid and midpoint of the opposite side.

 A Volumetric Method for Building Complex Models from Range Images
The signed distance contribution is computed by casting a ray from the sensor through each voxel near the range surface and then intersecting it with the triangle mesh, as shown in figure 5.
Note that the triangles that arise from interpolations across voxels of zero weight are distinct from the others: they are hole fillers.
Because the transition between unseen and empty is discontinuous and hole fill triangles are generated as an isosurface between these binary states, with no smooth transition, we generally observe aliasing artifacts in these areas.

 LSA: A Solution to Plato's Problem
Three distances among three objects are always consistent in two dimensions so long as they obey the triangle inequality (the longest distance must be less than or equal to the sum of the other two).
The sentence representation has correctly caught the drift, but the single averaged vector representation for the word fly, which falls close to midway between airplane and insect and is nearly orthogonal to any of the other words, is useless for establishing the topical focus of the discourse.
On the other interpretation, an additional stage is inserted between these two in which the average meaning for some or all of the words in the passage disambiguates the separate words individually, choosing a set of senses that are then combined.

The Vietnam War and CIA operations in Laos had the unintended consequence of first opening up many areas of Southeast Asia to modern transportation and then presenting a ready-made market for the drug among the U.S. military personnel stationed in the region.
At present, opium poppies are mostly grown in the Middle East, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, and in Asia, especially in the region known as the Golden Triangle straddling Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Yunnan province in the People's Republic of China.

 The Model in Space
If the primitive used is a triangle with a single face, lighting calculations are only significant if the face is oriented towards the light source.
Even though this would make it possible to obtain images to demonstrate the validity of the algorithms used, it would not be possible to model general illumination calculations such as two light sources illuminating the two sides of a triangle.
We detect that such an input has been given because the sidedeness of a critical point with respect to an endpoint of a linear light source will not be possible to be resolved.
