Balan, Trandafir T (2000) Torricelli's Problem in the Minkowskian Plane. RGMIA research report collection, 4 (1).


We analyse the problem to minimize the sum of distances of a point to three fixed points in a plane, which is endowed with an indefinite inner product structure. The Minkowskian plane is prefered since it allows an immediate physical interpretation.
