Spherical Geometry Proof Help Wanted
How would one go about proving that each point on a sphere not within an n-sided convex spherical polygon nor its antipode is contained in (n-2) lunes defined by the angles of said polygon?
I think it has something do with the fact that the two great circles that intersect in a vertex include two of the other points of the polygon and thus the lunes described by the angles at those other two points are disjoint with those of the vertex under consideration. I can't seem to seal the deal though and I could use some help.
What I'm trying to do at the end of it all is to prove that the sum of the angles of the polygon = pi*(n-2) + Area(polygon)/R^2. I can get everything except the crucial step of why there is this factor of pi*(n-2).
