Triangle center

In geometry, a triangle center (or triangle centre) is a point in the plane that is in some sense a center of a triangle akin to the centers of squares and circles.

Triangle inequality

In mathematics, the triangle inequality states that for any triangle, the sum of the lengths of any two sides must be greater than or equal to the length of the remaining side.

Triangulation (topology)

In mathematics, topology generalizes the notion of triangulation in a natural way as follows: A triangulation of a topological space X is a simplicial complex K, homeomorphic to X, together with a homeomorphism h: K → X.

Trilinear coordinates

In geometry, the trilinear coordinates x:y:z of a point relative to a given triangle describe the relative directed distances from the three sidelines of the triangle.
