Re: Isotomy and Isogonality
- Dear friends,
Relax the definition of point and consider the vertices of our triangle
as being elements (skewed circulants for example.) Can we then define
the isotomic and isogonal conjugate and still maintain their "natural"
- Dear Nikos
I'm looking for an isomorphism here.
Best Regards, Jeff

- Dear Francois,
I thought maybe by "complexification" you meant a 'complicated number'
like that defined in  below.
