Here, [d.sub.0] is the circumcenter, [l.sub.1], [l.sub.2], [l.sub.3] are three primal edges, and [d.sub.1], [d.sub.2], [d.sub.3] are three dual edges.
Meanwhile, unlike finite integration technique (FIT) [15,16], the dual mesh is constructed by connecting circumcenters instead of barycenters.
The minimum weighted distance of the circumcenter, x, from the three weighted points is a lower bound for the radius of the orthocircle.
If necessary, the ratio property can be generated by adding points at circumcenters of violating Delaunay tetrahedra.
The circumcenter of a triangle ([p.sub.i], [p.sub.j], [p.sub.k]) is
Let O be the circumcenter of the base triangle so that [OC.sub.2] [perpendicular to] AB.
a "center of a circumscribed circle" or a "circumcenter" of the given polygon.) Then a plot will be drawn of a convex solid the vertices of which are the "centers of the faces of a regular octahedron." And again, regularity of the resulting solid will have to be verified.
3 It is unnecessary for students to construct the circumcenter, centroid, orthocenter, and incenter of a triangle step by step after they are familiar with these geometric objects and their construction procedures.
but also for circumcenter, centroid, and excenter, we had similar procedure.
The objective of this example is to show that the circumcenter of a triangle is the center of the circle circumscribed on the triangle.
