**Convex polygon : **Polygon such that every 2 points within it can be joined by a segment that does not intersect the boundaries of the polygon. A triangle is a convex polygon.

**Simple polygon :** a region enclosed by a single closed polygonal chain that does not intersect itself. There are no holes in simple polygons.

**Two Ears Theorem :** Every simple polygon has 2 ears.

**Polygon Ears : **We say there is an ear at
vertex V in P if the triangle formed by v and its 2 adjacent vertices is
inside P and there is no vertice of P inside this triangle.
