Stewartâs Theorem and Apolloniusâ Theorem
  by Lukas Bulwahn

This entry formalizes the two geometric theorems, Stewart's and
Apollonius' theorem. Stewart's Theorem relates the length of
a triangle's cevian to the lengths of the triangle's two
sides. Apollonius' Theorem is a specialisation of Stewart's
theorem, restricting the cevian to be the median. The proof applies
the law of cosines, some basic geometric facts about triangles and
then simply transforms the terms algebraically to yield the
conjectured relation. The formalization in Isabelle can closely follow
the informal proofs described in the Wikipedia articles of those two
