Y = the radical center of the circles (Ma, MaC), (Mb, MbA), (Mc, McB)

M = the midpoint of the line segmant XY

1.

Let Ma, Mb, Mc be points such that: MaA / MaA' = MbB / MbB' = McC / McC' = t

Which is the locus of M as t varies?

For P = G, the locus is the Euler line.

For t = -1 (ie Ma, Mb, Mc = the midpoints of AA', BB', CC', resp.)

==> M is the circumcenter O of ABC for all P's.

2. Let Ma, Mb, Mc be points such that: MaA / MaP = MbB / MbP = McC / McP = t

Which is the locus of M as t varies?

For P = O ==> M = the NPC center N

For P = G ==> The locus is the Euler Line.

3. Let Ma, Mb, Mc be points such that: MaP / MaA' = MbP / MbB' = McP / McC' = t

ORTHOPOLAR CIRCLES

Let ABCD be a quadrilateral [quadragon], A',B',C',D' the circumcenters of BCD, CDA, DAB, ABC, resp. and P a point.

Denote:

1 = the orthopole of PA' wrt BCD

2 = the orthopole of PB' wrt CDA

We have:

1. P0, P1, P2, P3 lie on the NPCs (N),(N1),(N2),(N3) of ABC, QBC, QCA, QAB, resp. (since the respective lines pass through the circumcenters of the respective triangles)

2. The NPCs of ABC, QBC, QCA, QAB concur at the Poncelet point Q* of Q wrt ABC.

CONJECTURE:

The points P0, P1, P2, P3, Q* are concyclic.

Regular Polygon

A hexakaidecagon.... !

Prof. Conway writes:

Antreas Hatzipolakis and I worked out a complete system up to the millions from which this is taken, and which has also been "vetted" by several other scholars. The most important of the reasons which make me prefer the "kai" forms is that they permit these prefixes to be unambiguously parsed even when concatenated, as they are in Kepler's names for certain polyhedra; for example, the icosidodecahedron or (20,12)-hedron, so called because it has 20 faces of one type and 12 of another. Kepler said "this particular triacontakaidihedron I call the icosidodecahedron", a remark showing that he also preferred the kai forms.

Euler lines of ABC, IBC, ICA, IAB = 0,1,2,3, resp.

Orthopole of x [x in {0,1,2,3}] wrt (y) [(y) in {(0), (1), (2), (3)}] = xy

How are organized the 16 points xy ?

1. Collinearity:

The four lines: (01 02 03 04), (11 12 13 14), (21 22 23 24) (31 32 33 34)

are concurrent. Proof ?

2. Concyclicity:

The points 00, 10, 20, 30 are concyclic (?).

Is it true, for other than I points, on the Neuberg cubic (Fermat points etc)?

3. Orthology:

The triangles ABC, Triangle A'B'C' bounded by the lines [(11 12 13 14), (21 22 23 24) (31 32 33 34)] are orthologic. The one orthologic center (ABC, A'B'C') is S. The other one S' of (A'B'C', ABC) ?

Antreas P. Hatzipolakis, 24 March 2013

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

When you replace point I by a random point D, then we have a random Quadrangle ABCD (system of points without restrictions). The 4 orthopoles of Component Triangles ABC, BCD, CDA, DAB are collinear.

Then this is also true when D coincides with I (Incenter X(1)) and when L = some Euler Line.

In a random Quadrangle points 00, 11, 22, 33 are not concyclic.

However when D coincides with I, then 00, 11, 22, 33 are concyclic indeed (Cabri-proof).

Further 00 lies on NPC of ABC. 11, 22, 33 lie on NPC's ABD, BCD, CAD.

Chris van Tienhoven, Hyacinthos #21831

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

I checked when Point D is coinciding with X(13) then points 00, 11, 22, 33 are concyclic too (Cabri-proof).

About the orthologic property between 2 triangles, it is even much more beautiful!

Denote A=P0, B=P1, C=P2, I=P3.

The points P0, P1, P2, P3 form a Complete Quadrangle.

Let L0 be the line through 00,01,02,03.

Let L1 be the line through 10,11,12,13.

Let L2 be the line through 20,21,22,23.

Let L3 be the line through 30,31,32,33.

The lines L0, L1, L2, L3 form a Complete Quadrilateral.

Now the Complete Quadrangle P0.P1.P2.P3 and the Complete Quadrilateral L0.L1.L2.L3 are orthologicically related (complete new notion to me!).

The four perpendiculars of P0,P1,P2,P3 on resp. L0,L1,L2,L3 are concurrent!

The six perpendiculars of S01, S02, S03, S12, S13, S23 on resp. P0.P1, P0.P2, P0.P3, P1.P2, P1.P3, P2.P3 form a network like the internal and external angle bisectors of a triangle producing an incenter and 3 excenters.

Last but not least, I forgot to tell that the 4 NPC's in my former message have a common point, which is the Euler-Poncelet Point (QA-P2)of the Quadrangle ABCI.

Chris van Tienhoven, Hyacinthos #21834

CONJECTURES:

Conjecture: Let P be a point on the Euler line of ABC, and O, Oa,Ob,Oc the circumcenters of ABC, IBC, ICA, IAB.

The orthopoles of PO, POa, POb, POc wrt ABC, IBC, ICA, IAB, resp. are concyclic.

Question: Is it true for any point Q (instead of I) on the Neuberg cubic?

GENERAL CONJECTURE:

Let Q be a point on the Neuberg cubic, and P a point on the Euler line of ABC.

Let O, Oa, Ob, Oc be the circumcenters of ABC, QBC, QCA, QAB.

The orthopoles of PO, POa, POb, POc wrt ABC, QBC, QCA, QAB, resp are concyclic.

Radical Axes and Loci

Let ABC be a triangle, L a line and A',B',C' the orthogonal projections of A,B,C on L.

Denote:

R1 = the radical axis of (B, BB'), (C, CC')

[ie the radical axis of the circles centered at B,C with radii BB',CC', resp.]

R2 = the radical axis of (C,CC'), (A,AA')

R3 = the radical axis of (A,AA'), (B,BB')

R1, R2, R3 are concurrent at a point R(L) = the Radical Center of the Circles (A,AA'), (B,BB'), (C, CC').

Loci:

1. Let P be a point and L a line passing through P.

Which is the locus of R(L) points as L moves around P?

2. Let P be a point on the circumcircle and L the Simson line of P.

Which is the locus of R(L) as P moves on the circumcircle?

3. Let P be a point and La,Lb,Lc three lines passing trrough P ( i) parallels or (ii) perpendiculars to BC,CA,AB, resp.

Which is the locus of P such that the triangles ABC, R(La)R(Lb)R(Lc) are perspective?

Antreas P. Hatzipolakis, Hyacinthos #21815

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

1. It is an ellipse centered at the midpoint of segment OP. The ellipse degenerates when P is on NPC.

2. It is the Steiner deltoid of the medial triangle.

3 (i) A hyperbola similar to Jerabek hyperbola, but through O and and the nine point center. It intersects the Jerabek hyperbola at the isogonal conjugate of X3523.

(ii) It is the Darboux cubic of the medial triangle.

Francisco Javier, Hyacinthos #21819

The ratio squared of the homothety that carries Jerabek hyperbola into the hyperbola in 3(i) is

(p^2 - r^2 - 4 r R + 8 R^2)/(4 (p - r - 2 R) (p + r + 2 R)).

If P lies on Darboux cubic the perspector of the triangles AbcBcaCab, AcbBacCba coincides with the isotomic conjugate of the perspector of ABC and triangle bounded by (A'A", B'B ",C'C").

Does this happen only if P is in the Darboux cubic?

Some pairs of isogonal conjugate points (on Darboux cubic), and their corresponding perspector of the triangles AbcBcaCab, AcbBacCba:

PERSPECTIVITY [Antipedal Triangles of P,P*] --1--

Let P,P* be two isogonal conjugate points and A'B'C',A"B"C" the antipedal triangles of P,P*, resp.

Which is the locus of P such that the triangles:

1. A"B"C", Triangle bounded by (AA',BB',CC')

2. A'B'C', Triangle bounded by (AA",BB",CC")

3. ABC, Triangle A*B*C* bounded by (A'A",B'B",C'C") are perspective ?

Antreas P. Hatzipolakis, Hyacinthos #21782

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

The loci in 1. and 2 are the same:

line at infinity + circumcircle + K004[=Darboux cubic] + three cubics, each one relative to one of the vertices.

The cubic relative to A has equation

2 b^2 c^2 x^2 y + a^2 c^2 x y^2 + b^2 c^2 x y^2 + c^4 x y^2 + 2 b^2 c^2 x^2 z + 4 b^2 c^2 x y z + 2 a^2 c^2 y^2 z + a^2 b^2 x z^2 + b^4 x z^2 + b^2 c^2 x z^2 + 2 a^2 b^2 y z^2 =0.

It intersects the line at infinity at the infinite points of the bisectors of angle A and at the infinite point of the A-altitude.

It is its isogonal conjugate, then it intersects the circumcircle at the intersections of the circumcircle and the bisectors of angle A and at the antipode of A.

With respect to 3., the triangle bounded by (A'A", B' B ",C'C") is ALWAYS perspective with ABC.

If P=(x:y:z), then the perspector S is complicated: the coordinates of its isotomic conjugate, that is infinite when P lies on K004 [= Darboux cubic], are:

Pedal and Antipedal Circles tangent

Are there real points P such that the pedal and antipedal circles of P are tangent?

Antreas P. Hatzipolakis, Hyacinthos #21746

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

I get the cubic

S^2 xyz + CyclicSum[ a^2 y z (c^2 y + b^2 z)] = 0.

Francisco Javier, Hyacinthos #21747

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

Yes, if P is on an octic or on the cubic K191="circumcircle pedal cubic, nK(X6, X6,?)".

If P is on the cubic K191, then the point of the contact of the two circles are on the circumcircle.

K191: S^2 xyz + CyclicSum[ a^2 y z (c^2 y + b^2 z)] = 0,

or equivalently

K191: S^2 xyz + CyclicSum[ a^2 x (c^2 y^2 + b^2 z^2)] = 0.

S= 2*area(ABC) (In CTC of Bernad Gibert, S=area(ABC))

Angel Montesdeoca, Hyacinthos #21750

The cubic S^2 xyz + CyclicSum[ a^2 y z (c^2 y + b^2 z)] = 0 is not K191

It will be K634 in Bernard Gibert's list

Which is the locus of P such that A*B*C*, A"B"C" are perspective?

Antreas P. Hatzipolakis, Hyacinthos #21738

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

A*B*C*, A"B"C" are perspective if P is on the circumcircle (the circumcevian triangle degenerates) or on the K003="McCay cubic" or on K191="circumcircle pedal cubic".

If P is on K191="circumcircle pedal cubic", the perspector of the triangles A*B*C* and A"B"C" is a point in the circumcircle.

Angel Montesdeoca, Hyacinthos #21743

The cubic is S^2 xyz + CyclicSum[ a^2 y z (c^2 y + b^2 z)] = 0 (not K191) and will be K634 in Bernard Gibert's list.
