Bicentric Points

Let P be a point with trilinear coordinates alpha:beta:gamma=f(a,b,c):f(b,c,a):f(c,ab) and P^' be a point with trilinear coordinates alpha^':beta^':gamma^'=f(a,c,b):f(b,a,c):f(c,b,a) for some homogeneous function f such that |f(a,c,b)|!=|f(a,b,c)|. Then P and P^' are called bicentric points.

The best-known example of a pair of bicentric points are the first and second Brocard Points Omega and Omega^', which have trilinear coordinates c/b:a/c:b/a and b/c:c/a:a/b, respectively (Kimberling 1998, pp. 47-48).
