Abstract: The Study of Steiner Points Associated with the Vertices of Regular Tetrahedra Joined Together at Common Faces

The aim of this contribution is to help the improvement of the knowledge about the Steiner ratio function by showing some recent results related to the uniqueness of a point distribution which have been obtained about this problem. The exposition is almost pedagogical and the choice of a right circular helix input pattern is motivated by its usefulness for working with the geometrical modelling as an approach to the problem of protein folding.
