Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The shortest segment from one side of an angle T through a point P inside T is called the Philo line of P in T.  For discussions and guides to related sequences, see A197008 and A195284.
