Summary: An acute triangulation of a polygon \(\Gamma\) is a triangulation of \(\Gamma\) into acute triangles. Let \(f(\Gamma)\) denote the minimum number of triangles for an acute triangulation of \(\Gamma\), and let \(f(n)\) denote the maximum value of \(f(\Gamma)\) for all \(n\)-gons. We prove that \(f(4)=10\).
