Solution for a Special Case of the Toeplitz Conjecture

Authors: Prashanth R. Rao

According to Toeplitz conjecture or the inscribed square conjecture, every simple closed curve in a plane must have atleast one set of four points on it that belong to a square. This conjecture remains unsolved for a general case although it has been proven for some special cases of simple closed curves. In this paper, we prove the conjecture for a special case of a simple closed curve derived from two simple closed curves, each of which have exactly only one set of points defining a square. The Toeplitz solution squares of two parent simple closed curves have the same dimensions and share exactly one common vertex and the adjacent sides of the two squares form a right angle. The derived simple closed curve is formed by eliminating this common vertex (that belonged to the two solutions squares to begin with) and connecting other available points on the parent curves. We show that this derived simple closed curve has atleast one solution square satisfying the Toeplitz conjecture.
