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...
