An invariance property of the tridens curve in the isotropic plane

Jürgen Tölke

Fachbereich Mathematik, Universität Siegen Walter-Flex-Straße 3, D-57068 Siegen, Germany

Abstract: The tridens curves of third order and their generalizations in the isotropic plane over $\mathbb R$ were studied by D.Palman [P] and H.Sachs [S1,S2]. For additional properties see [T1,T2]. In this paper we prove that for every such tridens curve $T$ of third order there exists an inscribed triangle $\Delta$ with the property: $T$ remains invariant under the correspondence of opposite angle points of $\Delta$.
