### Oa,Ob,Oc

Let ABC be a triangle and A'B'C' the cevian triangle of I.

The reflection of BB' in AA' intersects AB in Ab
The reflection of CC' in AA' intersects AC in Ac

Let Oa be the circumcenter of A'AbAc

A'AbAc is the reflection of A'B'C' in AA' and Oa is the reflection
of the circumcenter of A'B'C' in AA'.

Similarly Ob, Oc.

Oa, Ob, Oc are the reflections of the circumcenter of the cevian triangle of I in the bisectors AA',BB',CC', resp. Therefore the lines AOa, BOb, COc concur at the isogonal conjugate of the circumcenter of A'B'C'.

Coordinates ?

Generalization:

We have two problems:

1. The locus of P such that ABC, OaObOc are perspective. (Oa,Ob,Oc as defined above)
2. The locus of P such that ABC, QaQbQc are perspective, where Qa is the circumcenter of the triangle which is the reflection of A'B'C' in AA' (ie Qa is the reflection of the circumcenter of A'B'C' in AA') and similarly Qb,Qc

### PP*

Let ABC be a triangle, P a point and A1B1C1 the pedal triangle of P.

Let Q be a point on the line PDP* [D = the center of the common pedal circle of P and its isog. conjugate P*] and Q1Q2Q3 the circumcevian triangle of Q with respect A1B1C1.

### PP* --> PP*

Let ABC be a triangle and A1B1C1, A2B2C2 the pedal triangles of two isogonal points P,P*, resp.

Let Q be a point on the line PP* and P1P2P3 the circumcevian triangle of Q with respect the triangle A1B1C1.

Conjecture:

The triangles A2B2C2, P1P2P3 are perspective. The perspector Q' lies on PP*.

APH, 22 February 2012

--------------------------------------------------------

The locus of Q such that P1P2P3 and A2B2C2 are perspective includes the line PP*

I find that the locus includes also the points on the circle with the midpoint
of PP* as center and and radius (AP BP CP)/(2 |OP^2 - R^2|).

Francisco Javier, Hyacinthos #20856.

Let R1R2R3 be the reflection of the triangle P1P2P3 in the line PP*.

The triangles A2B2C2, R1R2R3 are perspective.

### Concurrent Euler Lines (generalization)

Problem 1:

Let L1,L2 be two lines intersected at A, and P a point. To draw line L intersecting L1,L2 at Ab,Ac, resp. such that:

P be

- the circumcenter of AAbAc

Ab, Ac are the other than A intersections of the circle (P,PA) with the lines L1,L2

- the orthocenter of AAbAc

The perpendiculars to L1,L2 through P intersect L2,L1 at Ac,Ab, resp.

In general, P be a fixed point on the Euler line of AAbAc.
(ie PO/PH = m/n, where m,n given numbers)

Problem 2:

Similarly M2 a line intersecting BC,BA at Bc,Ba resp. such that Bb is X(i) point on the Euler line of BbBcBa, and M3 a line intersecting CA,CB at Ca,Cb such that Cc is X(i) point on the Euler line of CcCaCb.

2. AaAbAc, BbBcBa, CcCaCb

Are  N,N1,N2,N3 lying on a circle (with center on the HO line [Euler Line], and for a point P instead of O, on the HP line)?

APH, 10 February 2012

It is true for P = O (see the proof in the comment).
I name the circle as EL CRECO circle in honor of the great Cretan - Spanish painter DOMINICOS THEOTOKOPOULOS known as EL GRECO

Are the triangles ABC, A1B1C1 perspective ?

APH,  8 February 2012

Yes, they're perspective with perspector Q=X3542, on the Euler line.
This point satisfies, HQ:QG = - 6 cosA cosB cosC

A2B2C2 and ABC perspective if and only P is  lies on the NPC or in the trilinear
polar of X2052.

Generalization: Is it true if we replace O with a point P?
(The perspector on the HP line)
APH, Hyacinthos #20809

---------------------------------------------------

Yes, it is true even if you replace O by P,
It follows from the following problem:-
It follows from the following problem which is a generalisation of a
problem you posted earlier:- Given a triangle ABC, A1B1C1 be the
circumcevian triangle of a point R and A2B2C2 be the circumcevian triangle
of a point Q. If A3B3C3 is the circumcevian triangle of R wrt A2B2C2, then
A1A3,B1B3,C1C3 concur on RQ.
Now take R= reflection of H on P and Q=H and the result follows.

### PICASSO CIRCLES

PICASSO POINT.

Let ABC be a triangle, A'B'C' the antipodal triangle of ABC (=circumcevian triangle of O) and D a point.

Let A"B"C" be the circumcevian triangle of D with respect A'B'C' (ie A" is the other than A' intersection of A'D with the circumcircle etc)

Denote:

N1,N2,N3 the NPC centers of the triangles A"BC, B"CA, C"AB, resp.

The four NPC centers N, N1,N2,N3 are concyclic.

See Picasso Point Generalized.

Call the circle (N,N1,N2,N3) as Picasso Circle with respect ABC and D and let P0 be its center (ie the center of the Picasso circle with respect ABC and D)

Now, omit the vertex A and replace it with A" and denote Pa = the center of the Picasso circle with respect A"BC and D.

Similarly denote Pb = the center of the Picasso circle with respect AB"C and Pc = the center of the Picasso circle with respect ABC" and D.

Are the following true?

1. The four circles (P0), (Pa), (Pb), (Pc) are concurrent at a point Pp.

2. The four centers P0, Pa, Pb, Pc and the point D lie on a circle with center Pp.

APH, 5 February 2012

---------------------------------------------------------

1. It is true. The point Pp is the reflection of O on the midpoint of DN, that is DONPp is a parallelogram, and DPp is always parallel to Euler line.

2. The four centers P0, Pa, Pb, Pc, BUT NOT THE POINT D lie on a circle with center Pp. The radius of this circle is HALF the distance between D and O.
