The Parabolas of Artzt in the Solution of a Geometric Problem of Minimum Length
Klaoudatos, Nikos
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v42 n2 p239-245 Mar 2011
The article describes the solution of a geometric problem and how this problem was formed. During the investigation process, I discovered that the inscribed parabola in a triangle, known as the parabola of Artzt, a mathematical subject developed almost 120 years ago, was the decisive idea which directed me towards the solution. Moreover, in the solution, I also used notions that some mathematicians of the present generation, probably, are not familiar with, such as the symmedian and the Simson line. (Contains 7 figures and 4 notes.)
