Non-Euclidean triangle

  1. Jul 7, 2004 #1
    A triangle with legs a and b, and hypotenuse (a2+b2)1/2, maps directly onto an Euclidean plane, of curvature zero. What is the average curvature of a manifold conformed to a triangle of legs 1/a and 1/b, and hypotenuse (a2+b2)-1/2?

    The above should read: "What is the constant curvature of a manifold..."
