Dear Hyacinthians,

here's a new point I've discovered by chance while playing with
extraversions.

Let I be the incenter.
Let A' be the point where the A-excircle touches BC and let A* be
the second intersection of the line IA' with the A-excircle.
Define B', C' and B*, C* cyclically.

==> Triangles ABC and A*B*C* are perspective

The barycentric coordinates of the perspector P are

P = ( a^5 - a^4.(b + c) - 2.a^3.(b + c)^2 + 2.a^2.(b + c)^3
+ a.(b + c)^4 - (b + c)^5 :
b^5 - b^4.(c + a) - 2.b^3.(c + a)^2 + 2.b^2.(c + a)^3
+ b.(c + a)^4 - (c + a)^5 :
c^5 - c^4.(a + b) - 2.c^3.(a + b)^2 + 2.c^2.(a + b)^3
+ c.(a + b)^4 - (a + b)^5 )

It's amazing that:

- the most basic points still hide new points
- basic points and simple constructions are no guarantee for simple
coordinates

Dear Eric,
I think that this property holds for every point P as follows:
If P is a point and P1, P2, P3 are its extraversions
If the line PX1 where X1 is the orthogonal projection of P1 on BC
meets the pedal circle of P1 at A* and similarly define the points

This is indeed fascinating. It reminds me on the
Nagel-Schröder point X(1339) which is the point of
intersection of the circles AIA', BIB', CIC'
different from I. By the way, I have no synthetic
proof of the coaxality of these circles - can
anybody help?

The poles of the lines IA', IB', IC' with respect
to the A-, B-, C-excircles are collinear. In other
words, the tangents to the A-, B-, C-excircles at
the points A*, B*, C* meet the lines BC, CA, AB at
three collinear points.

The polars of the incenter I with respect to the
excircles of triangle ABC enclose a triangle in
perspective to triangle ABC. The perspector is a
point not in the ETC.

Sorry. what I wrote about extraversions is nonsense.
It doesn't hold. Take it as I didn't wrote it.

As for your Prasolov generalization you are riqht
because the point A* is antipode in the same pedal circle
of the projection on BC of the point P* isogonal conjugate of P.

This point is 4X(9)-3X(165), ie X(193) of the excentral triangle.
He lies on the line X(9)X(165) (line GK of the excentral triangle)

Dear Eric and friends,

Let I be the incenter.
Let A' be the point where the A-excircle touches BC and let A* be
the second intersection of the line IA' with the A-excircle.
Define B', C' and B*, C* cyclically.

==> Triangles ABC and A*B*C* are perspective

The barycentric coordinates of the perspector P are

P = ( a^5 - a^4.(b + c) - 2.a^3.(b + c)^2 + 2.a^2.(b + c)^3
+ a.(b + c)^4 - (b + c)^5 :
b^5 - b^4.(c + a) - 2.b^3.(c + a)^2 + 2.b^2.(c + a)^3
+ b.(c + a)^4 - (c + a)^5 :
c^5 - c^4.(a + b) - 2.c^3.(a + b)^2 + 2.c^2.(a + b)^3
+ c.(a + b)^4 - (a + b)^5 )

*** These coordinates simplify, as Jean-Pierre has pointed out, into
((b+c-a)^3 : (c+a-b)^3 : (a+b-c)^3)). P is indeed the ``barycentric
cube'' of the Nagel point.

I have also investigated the question with the incenter I replaced by
a general point Q with barycentric coordinates (u:v:w).
With A* = second intersection of QA' with the A-excircle etc., the
triangle A*B*C* is perspective with ABC if and only if Q lies on one
of the following curves:

(i) the line at infinity,
(ii) the inferior of the circumconic with center I, (which is the
conic through A', B', C' and the midpoints of the sides of ABC),
(iii) the Spieker central cubic, identified as K033 in Bernard's CTC).

The locus of the perspector is
(i) the isogonal conjugate of the incircle,
(ii) the inscribed conic with center X(1329), which is the
intersection of the lines joining the Nagel point to the Feuerbach
point, and the centroid to the outer Feuerbach point X(12),
(iii) to be determined, but here are the perspectors for various Q on
the Spieker central cubic:

If you replace the excircles with the three in-conics centered at the
vertices of the anticevian of a point Q, then :

1) the polars of M wrt to these conics concur iff M lies on a conic (C)
centered at the complement of Q.
The three in-conics and (C) share the same directions of axis.

2) these polars bound a triangle perspective to ABC iff M lies on the
central pK
- with pole the center of the inconic with perspector Q,
- with pivot the anticomplement of Q,
- with center the complement of Q,

This is another way to approach our central pK in Special Isocubics §3.

We know that :
(1) The polar circle Cs of the three excircles is centered at the
complement of I and the polar line of S wrt an excircle is the
radical axis of Cs and the excircle.
Your results are now obvious if you change in (1) a,b,c to the

The point A* is just the point on the A-excircle
such that the circle BCA* is tangent to the
A-excircle!!

And now the fact that the lines AA*, BB*, CC*

If the circle Ca touches BC at U, let U' = harmonic conjugate of U

of U upon U'U''.

Another variation:

Let P be a point and A1B1C1 its pedal triangle. Define Ka the circle
with center P and tangent to BC at A1. Similarly define the circles Kb,Kc.

Let A2, B2, C2 be the points of contact of the circles

An obvious point on this locus is the circumcenter O of ABC.
It is easy to give a synthetic proof that the triangles
ABC, A2B2C2 are homothetic and that the perspector is the
De Longchamps point.

Another point on this locus (I think) is the incenter I of ABC
and that the perspector is not in ETC.
