Title:  A postscript on distances in convex n-gons. (In English)
Source:  Discrete Comput. Geom. 11, No.1, 111-117 (1994).
Review:  Denote by g(n) the largest k such that every convex polygon with n vertices has a vertex x for which the next k vertices clockwise from x or the next k vertices counterclockwise from x are successively farther from x. The authors prove that g(n) = [n/3]+1 for n \geq 4.
