Interactive Applet |
You can move the points A, B and C (click on the point and drag it).
Press the keys “+” and “−” to zoom in or zoom out the visualization window and use the arrow keys to translate it.
You can also construct all centers related with this one (as described in ETC) using the “Run Macro Tool”. To do this, click on the icon _{}, select the center name from the list and, then, click on the vertices A, B and C successively.

Trilinears f(A,B,C) : f(B,C,A) : f(C,A,B),
where f(A,B,C) = [sin(π/3 - A/3)]/sin(π/3 + A/3)
Barycentrics (sin A)f(A,B,C) : (sin B)f(B,C,A) : (sin C)f(C,A,B)Rotate line BC about B away from A through angle B/3, and rotate line BC about C away from A through angle C/3; let A' be the point in which the two rotated lines meet. Define B' and C' cyclically. Let A" be the point of intersection of lines BC' and B'C, and define B" and C" cyclically. The lines AA', BB', CC' concur in X(357), and AA", BB", CC" concur in X(358). The first of these with reference to triangle A'B'C' is X(1133); i.e., X(1133) = X(357)-of-A'B'C'.
