The regular heptagon
Keywords:Normal heptagon, geometric construction, cyclotomy, neusis
In the present work we study the construction of the regular heptagon, i.e. the division of the circle into seven equal parts. We prove that the construction with the ruler and compass is impossible and we give a construction with neusis attributed to Archimedes.
