On Zindler Curves in Normed Planes We extend the notion of Zindler curve from the Euclidean plane to
normed planes. A characterization of Zindler curves for general
normed planes is given, and the relation between Zindler curves and
curves of constant area-halving distances in such planes is
discussed.

Covering Discs in Minkowski Planes We investigate the following version of the circle covering
problem in strictly convex (normed or) Minkowski planes: to cover
a circle of largest possible diameter by $k$ unit circles. In
particular, we study the cases $k=3$, $k=4$, and $k=7$. For $k=3$
and $k=4$, the diameters under consideration are described in
terms of side-lengths and circumradii of certain inscribed regular
triangles or quadrangles. This yields also simple explanations of
geometric meanings that the corresponding homothety ratios have.
It turns out that basic notions from Minkowski geometry play an
essential role in our proofs, namely Minkowskian bisectors,
$d$-segments, and the monotonicity lemma.

Angle Measures and Bisectors in Minkowski Planes \begin{abstract}
We prove that a Minkowski plane is Euclidean if and only if Busemann's or
Glogovskij's definitions
of angular bisectors coincide
with a bisector defined by an angular measure in the sense of Brass.
In addition, bisectors defined by the area measure coincide with bisectors
defined by the circumference (arc length) measure
if and only if the unit circle is an
equiframed curve.
