Proof: geometric variational argument, if it is not true there exist j :

then we move a side of P* and we get P’ such that

A new property for the maximizers polygons of the outer problem

THEOREM: For the maximizer polygon P* of G has the

following property::

where for any polygon P with sides of lenght

Note: each

is an affinely invariant ratio of distances between four aligned points similarly to the cross-ratio.

Lagrange multipliers argument for the outer problem

The maximizing polygon solves the system

Theorem 2: For any n > 5 the polygons P* maximizing G have both properties above, i.e. :

An algebraic system for the outer problem

Theorem A: Let P be a maximizer of G then

and the set of the ratios

solves

the system of n equations

Remark: is a circulant system of n equations in

the unknowns :

Theorem B: all solutions

to the system

are trivial, i.e.

variational argument for the inner problem
Variational argument for the inner problem

The maximum value of F(P) is attained at P* iff P*is an affinely regular polygons of n sides.

Lemma 1

Lemma 1 is equivalent to

Coxeter (1992) have proved that P* is affinely regular iff :

are suitable real constants, depending only on n.

slide14

Lemma 2 (Multipliers Lagrange argument)

At the maximizing polygon P* the following Lagrange system holds

is a system of (2n +2n) real equations in the unknowns

which are represented from 4n real numbers.

slide15

Lemma 3 : If P* solves the vector system

then the parameters

solve the following system :

Lemma 4 : the previous system is a circulant system in the unknowns which can be splitted in the following way:

Proof of lemma 4 : in order to get the first set of the equations in the parameters μ we compare Cj solvedfrom the first group of equation with one from the second one. To get the second set we apply Rouché-Capelli theorems to (3+3) consecutives equations of the system Sn in 5 consecutives unknowns

slide16

Lemma 5 : The only real solutions bigger than 1 of the following circulant system :

are the trivial solutions

Proof of lemma 5: we define

The above circular system becomes

The goal is to prove that all

are equal.

slide17

First proof (ten pages long) :

we look for the sign of parallel differences

we get contradiction if the above difference is non zero.

Second proof (magic ): let us consider

Suppose

then

Since four consecutive values are equal the consecutives equations imply that

all the values are equal.
