Given a planar convex body B centered at the origin, we denote by ℳ ²(B) the Minkowski plane (i.e., two-dimensional linear normed space) with the unit ball B. For a triangle T in ℳ ²(B) we denote by ${R}_{B}\left(T\right)$ the least possible radius of a Minkowskian ball enclosing T. We remark that in the terminology of location science ${R}_{B}\left(T\right)$ is the optimum of the minimax location problem with distance induced by B and vertices of T as existing facilities (see, for instance, [HM03] and the references therein). Using methods...
