- My apologies. I misread Francisco Javier's post below. As he explained privately, he meant the difference:

LOCUS = SEXTIC(Q014) - SEXTIC(S 4 S^2 x y z (x + y + z) (c^2 x y + b^2 x z + a^2 y z) )

Question: does this locus contain any ETC centers or bicentric pairs besides X(13), X(14), and PU(5)? Are the circumcircle intercepts of line X(5)X(523) triangle centers or another bicentric pair?

Its isogonal conjugate Qi* is the point which is the nine-point center of its pedal triangle (ETC search 1.142779079509848). The line QiQi* passes through X(5).

A CIRCLE:

Let ABC be a triangle, A'B'C' the cevian triangle of I and N1, N2, N3

the NPC centers of IB'C', IC'A', IA'B', resp.

The points I, N1,N2,N3 are concyclic.

Center of the circle?

[César Lozada]:

Yes, they are concyclic.

The center X of the circle has trilinears:

2*cos(A)+4*sin(3*A/2)*cos(B/2-C/2)+ cos(B-C)+2 : :

Let Ia, Ib, Ic be the excenters of ABC.

Denote:

A1B1C1, A2B2C2, A3B3C3 = the cevian triangles of Ia, Ib, Ic, resp.
