An analogue of Ptolemy’s theorem and its converse in hyperbolic geometry

Joseph Earl Valentine

Vol. 34 (1970), No. 3, 817–825
Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to give a complete answer to the question: what relations between the mutual distances of n(n 3) points in the hyperbolic plane are necessary and sufficient to insure that those points lie on a line, circle, horocycle, or one branch of an equidistant curve, respectively ?
