Wu, Yu-Dong and Zhang, Zhi-Hua (2007) The Edge-Tangent Sphere of a Circumscriptible n-Simplex. Research report collection, 10 (3).


A n−simplex is circumscriptible if there is a sphere tangent to each of its n(n + 1)/2 edges. We prove that the radius of the edge-tangent sphere is at least √((n(n−1))/2) times the radius of its inscribed sphere. This settles affirmatively a part of a problem posed by the authors.
