QA-Tf2: Involutary Conjugate

The Involutary Conjugate of a point Q is the 2nd Double Point of the QA-Line Involution (see QA-Tf1) occurring on the tangent at Q to the conic (P1, P2, P3, P4, Q).
It is a conjugate because applying two times this transformation ends up in the original point.
QA-Tf2 in a Quadrangle is the equivalent of QL-Tf2 in a Quadrilateral.
The Involutary Conjugate can also be seen as the Pi-Ceva Conjugate of Q wrt Component Triangle Pj.Pk.Pl (for all combinations of (i,j,k,l)  (1,2,3,4)) (note Bernard Gibert).
Construction 1
1. Construct the conic through P1, P2, P3, P4, Q.
2. Construct the tangent Lq at Q to this conic.
3. Construct the Involution Center IC of the created QA-Line Involution for Lq (see Ref-19 as well as QA-Tf5).
4. Now R = the Involutary Conjugate of Q = the Reflection of Q in IC.
Construction 2 (by Eckart Schmidt)
1. Choose one of the Component Quadrigons of the Reference Quadrangle.
2. Let Si and Sj be the intersection points of the opposite sides of the Quadrigon.
3. Connect X (the point to be transformed) with Si and Sj and construct on these lines the 4th harmonic points Xi and Xj wrt the intersection points with the crossing opposite quadrigon lines.
4. Connecting lines Si.Xj and Sj.Xi intersect in X*, the Involutary Conjugate of X.
Construction 3
1. Let S1 = P1.P2 ^ P3.P4, S2 = P1.P4 ^ P2.P3, P is a random point.
2. QA-Tf2(P) = 4th intersection point of conics (P1,P3,S1,S2,P) and (P2,P4,S1,S2,P).

Coordinates and Coefficients
Let Q (u : v : w) be a random point not on one of the connecting lines of the Reference Quadrangle.
It is possible to construct a conic through P1, P2, P3, P4, Q since a conic is defined by 5 points.
This tangent (see QA-L-1) at Q creates a QA-Line Involution (QA-Tf1), where Q represents the 1st Double Point and QA-Tf2 is the 2nd Double Point.
Let Q(u:v:w) be a random point.
Coordinates of QA-Tf2 in CT-notation:
  ( u (q r u - p r v - p q w) : v (-q r u + p r v - p q w) : w (-q r u - p r v + p q w) )
Coordinates of QA-Tf2 in in DT-notation:
                (p2 v w : q2 w u : r2 u v)
