*The arbelos,
mathematics and computer graphics*

Authors: Hiroshi Okumura, Masayuki Watanabe

Affiliations: Maebashi Institute of Technology

Keywords: arbelos, Java, geometric animation, computer graphics

The arbelos is a plane figure formed by three mutually

touching circles with collinear centers. The figure is

a historical one, but there are still many discoveries and

ongoing researches for this today, which give comprehensible

examples of development of mathematics and also give good

geometric computer animation materials.
