Fermat Point for a Triangle in Three Dimensions Using the Taxicab Metric
Hanson, J. R.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v48 n3 p473-482 2017
This article explores the process of finding the Fermat point for a triangle ABC in three dimensions. Three examples are presented in detail using geometrical methods. A delightfully simple general method is then presented that requires only the comparison of coordinates of the vertices A, B and C.
