Acute triangulations of the regular icosahedral surface. (English) Zbl 1062.51014

The authors prove that the surface of the regular icosahedron admits a triangulation with eight non-obtuse triangles, as well as a triangulation with twelve acute triangles. There are no triangulations with fewer than eight or twelve, respectively, non-obtuse or acute triangles.
