Larry Hoehn, The isosceles trapezoid and its dissecting similar triangles,
Forum Geometricorum, 12 (2012) 27--36.

Abstract. Isosceles trapezoids are dissected into three similar triangles and rearranged to form two additional isosceles trapezoids. Moreover, triangle centers, one from each similar triangle, form the vertices of a centric triangle which has special properties. For example, the centroidal triangles are congruent to each other and have an area one-ninth of the area of the trapezoids; whereas, the circumcentric triangles are not congruent, but still have equal areas.

Paul Yiu, On the conic through the intercepts of the three lines through the centroid and the intercepts of a given line,
Forum Geometricorum, 13 (2013) 87--102.

Abstract. Let L be a line intersecting the sidelines of triangle ABC at X, Y, Z respectively. The lines joining these intercepts to the centroid give rise to six more intercepts on the sidelines which lie on a conic Q(L,G). We show that this conic (i) degenerates in a pair of lines if L is tangent to the Steiner inellipse, (ii) is a parabola if L is tangent to the ellipse containing the trisection points of the sides, (iii) is a rectangular hyperbola if L is tangent to a circle C_G with center G. We give a ruler and compass construction of the circle C_G. Finally, we also construct the two lines each with the property that the conic Q(L,G) is a circle.
