Here is an example
, but searching for "likelihood triangle" turns up nothing. I've never heard of that term before.
A triangle plot seems similar, but the axes are at 60 degree angles. Everyone in my laboratory agrees that they are difficult to easily interpret without practice.
Bonus question: Is there an R package which would create such a graph?
