Second Fermat Point


The second Fermat point X^' or F_2 (also known as the second isogonic center) can be constructed by drawing equilateral triangles on the inside of a given triangle and connecting opposite vertices. The three diagonals in the figure then intersect in the second Fermat point, which has triangle center function


and is Kimberling center X_(14) (Kimberling 1998, p. 68).

It also arises in Napoleon's theorem.
