• Dear Andreas, ... Your result is ok, you can do the same with interior points: The circle (A,AA ) intersects the int. of AB at Abi and the int. of AC at Aci

Your result is ok, you can do the same with interior points:

The circle (A,AA") intersects the int. of AB at Abi and the int. of AC at Aci
(B,BB") BC Bci BA Bai

(C,CC") CA Cai CB Cbi

Let Xi = BCai /\ CBai; Yi = CAbi /\ ACbi, Zi = ABci /\ BAci

Then the triangles XiYiZi, ABC are in perspective.
(I found that the perspector is the centroid G)

But an interesting result for you is that the radical center is the

X(389) = CENTER OF THE TAYLOR CIRCLE

Why?

I have a nice french little book: "La géométrie du triangle" de Yvonne et rené
Sortais. Collectio Hermann 1987.

Page 38:

Soient I, J, K les pieds des hauteurs du triangle ABC.
Soient M, N les projetés orthogonaux de I sur AC et AB.
Soient P,Q les projetés orthogonaux de J sur AB et BC.
Soient R,S les projetés orthogonaux de K sur BC et CA.
Alors
1) PS//BC, NR//CA, QM//AB
2) Les six points MNPQRS sont cocycliques, ils définissent le cercle de Taylor de
ABC.

Page 40:
Soient I'J'K' les milieux des côtés du triangle IJK
Alors
le centre du cercle de Taylor est le point de concours des trois bissectrices
intérieures du triangle I'J'K'.

You can probably find the join with your points.
