Abstract. Starting with an analysis of the configuration of chords of contact points with two lines, defined on conics circumscribing a triangle and tangent to these lines, we prove properties relating to the case the conics are parabolas and a resulting method to construct the parabola tangent to four lines.

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.
