Ideal Triangles in the Poincaré disc

{{$t('general.by')}}
When using the Poincaré disc model for hyperbolic geometry, the hyperbolic universe is inside a circle. The circle itself is at infinity. A triangle inside the circle will always have angle sum < 180 degrees. As the vertices of a triangle approach the circle, the angle sum tends to 0, and the hyperbolic perimeter tends to infinity. The limiting triangle is called an ideal triangle. The hyperbolic area of an ideal triangle is always pi. All triangles in the animation have the same hyperbolic area.
