Shapes and properties of some geometric figures in taxicab geometry.
  • Circles: One of the defining figures of this geometry: the taxicab circle.
    This page also addresses the value of π in taxicab geometry.

  • Regular Polygons: Regular polygons are a scarce breed in taxicab geometry.

  • Solids of Revolution: Generating a solid of revolution in a geometry other than Euclidean geometry might be trickier than you think initially...

  • The Butterfly Theorem: The Taxicab Geometry version of the Butterfly Theorem gives some insight as to why the theorem holds universally in Euclidean geometry.
