Random triangle problem: geometrical approach
Call these vertical sides left and right vertical sides respectively.
Non-intersecting Paths, Random Tilings and Random Matrices
There is one QPT driven by the imbalance on both sides of the QCP which are XY and inverted XY transitions respectively, so the two transitions on the two sides are indeed dual to each other ( Fig.C1a )78 .

Roughly speaking, since all the terms in equation (III) and (3.9) are positive, it is enough to check that after expanding both sides every term on the left hand side has a corresponding term on the right hand side.
