Among all triangles of given diameter, the equilateral triangle is shown to minimize the sum of the first n eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian, for each n ≥ 1. In addition, the first, second and third eigenvalues are each proved to be minimal for the equilateral triangle. The disk is conjectured to be the minimizer among general domains.
