Tangential Mid-Arc Triangle

The tangential mid-arc triangle of a reference triangle is the triangle whose sides are the tangents to the incircle at the intersections of the internal angle bisectors with the incircle, where the points of intersection nearest the vertices are chosen (Kimberling 1998, p. 160).

It has trilinear vertex matrix

where , , and .

The following table gives the centers of the tangential mid-arc triangle in terms of the centers of the reference triangle for Kimberling centers with .

The tangential mid-arc triangle is perspective with the original triangle, the perspector being Kimberling center . This perspector is the incenter of the contact triangle of , and is called the first mid-arc point of .

The circumcircle of the tangential mid-arc triangle is the tangential mid-arc circle.
