RADICAL CENTERS ON THE LINES OH (Euler line),OI

Let ABC be a triangle and

1. A'B'C' the pedal triangle of H (orthic triangle)

Denote:

(Oa) = the circumcircle of OBC.

(O1) = the reflection of (Oa) in BC.

(O'1) = the reflection of (O1) in HA'.

(Ob) = the circumcircle of OCA.

(O2) = the reflection of (Ob) in CA.

(O'2) = the reflection of (O2) in HB'.

(Oc) = the circumcircle of OAB.

(O3) = the reflection of (Oc) in AB.

(O'3) = the reflection of (O3) in HC'.

The radical center of (O'1),(O'2),(O'3) lies on the OH line (Euler line)

2. A'B'C' the pedal triangle of I.

Denote:

(Oa) = the circumcircle of IBC.

(O1) = the reflection of (Oa) in BC.

(O'1) = the reflection of (O1) in IA'.

(Ob) = the circumcircle of ICA.

(O2) = the reflection of (Ob) in CA.

(O'2) = the reflection of (O2) in IB'.

(Oc) = the circumcircle of IAB.

(O3) = the reflection of (Oc) in AB.

(O'3) = the reflection of (O3) in IC'.

The radical center of (O'1),(O'2),(O'3) lies on the OI line.

Generalizations (Loci):

Let ABC be a triangle, P,P* two isogonal conjugate points and A'B'C',A"B"C" the pedal triangles of P,P*.

Denote:

(Oa) = the circumcircle of PBC.

(O1) = the reflection of (Oa) in BC.

(O'1) = the reflection of (O1) in PA'.

(O"1) = the reflection of (O1) in P*A"

(Ob) = the circumcircle of PCA.

(O2) = the reflection of (Ob) in CA.

(O'2) = the reflection of (O2) in PB'.

(O"2) = the reflection of (O2) in P*B"

(Oc) = the circumcircle of PAB.

(O3) = the reflection of (Oc) in AB.

(O'3) = the reflection of (O3) in PC'.

(O"3) = the reflection of (O3) in P*C"

R' = the radical center of (O'1),(O'2),(O'3)

R" = the radical center of (O"1),(O"2),(O"3)

Which is the locus of P such that:

1. O, P, R'

2. O, P, R"

3. O, R', R"

4. P, P*, R'

5. P, R', R"

are collinear ?
