The Small Hexagon and Heptagon with Maximum Sum of Distances Between Vertices

, , , , and

The hexagon and heptagon with unit diameter and maximum sum of Euclidean distances between vertices are determined by enumerating diameter configurations, and by using a branch and cut algorithm for nonconvex quadratic programming. Lower bounds on the value on this sum are presented for polygon with a larger number of vertices.
