QL-Tf6: QL-Trilinear Polar

QL-Tf6 is a transformation mapping a point into a line.
Let L1.L2.L3.L4 be a quadrilateral. Let P be a random point. Let L1’ be the trilinear polar of P wrt triangle L2.L3.L4.
Similarly, we have L2’, L3’, L4’. Then quadrilaterals L1.L2.L3.L4 and L1’.L2’.L3’.L4’ are point perspective (meaning that lines through Li^Lj and Li’^Lj’ are concurrent (i,j elements from (1,2,3,4)) and line perspective (meaning that Li^Li’ are collinear (i=1,2,3,4)). Last item being the line through L1^L1’, L2^L2’, L3^L3’ and L4^L4’ is called the QL-Trilinear Polar.
This transformation was mentioned as dual transformation of QA-Tf7 by Tsihong Lau in Ref-34, QFG#2154. See also QFG#2161.
This transformation was also mentioned as the collinear line of the 3 versions of QA-Tf2(P) (see QL-3QG1) by Eckart Schmidt in Ref-34, QFG#2176,#2177.
The equivalent of this transformation in a quadrangle is QA-Tf7.QA-Tf7 and QL-Tf6 have corresponding coordinates (interchange (p:q:r) with (l:m:n)).
QL Tf6 QL Trilinear Polar 01
Reverse Transformation QL-Tf6R
Note that P is perspector and L is Perspectrix of perspective quadrangles L1.L2.L3.L4 and L1’.L2’.L3’.L4’. QL-Tf6 maps the Perspector P into the Perspectrix L.
There is a reverse Transformation QL-Tf6R that will map Perspectrix L into three point images P1,P2,P3, being the 3 possible related Perspectors.
For these points QL-Tf6(Pi) = L. They are the common intersections of the 3 versions of the conics QA-Tf2(L) and lie on a QL-Tr1-Circumconic.
When L = QL-L1, then the three points Pi are the 3 common intersections (unequal QL-P24) of the QL-Tr1-Circumconic through QL-P8 and QL-P13 and a circle round the reflection of QL-P9 in QL-P6 through QL-P24. See Ref-34, Eckart Schmidt, QFG#2176, #2177.
Given point P(x:y:z), then coordinates QL-Tf6(P) are:
(y z (2 l x + m y + n z) : x z (l x + 2 m y + n z) : x y (l x + m y + 2 n z))
• The QL-Trilinear Polar of QL-P1 is:
   - the line through these points:
     QL-P26, QL-Tf1(QL-P17), QL-Tf1(QL-P27), QL-Tf3(QL-P2.QL-P6), QL-Tf3(QL-P3.QL-P4)
   - also being the perpendicular bisector of QL-P1.QL-Tf1(QL-P6)
   - also being QL-Tf1(QL-Ci6).
• The QL-Trilinear Polar of QL-P8 is a line through QL-P23 and is the 2nd asymptote of QL-Co2 and is parallel to the QL-Trilinear Polar of QL-P23.
QL-Tf6(QL-P8) // QL-Tf6(QL-P23) // QL-Tf2(QL-Tf6(QL-P8)) // QL-Tf6(QL-L9 ^ QL-P8.QL-P13)). See Ref-34, Eckart Schmidt, QFG#2176, #2177.
• The QL-Trilinear Polar of QL-P13 is a line through QL-P19 parallel to QL-L9.
QL-Tf6 maps the vertices of QL-Tr1 into the opposite lines of QL-Tr1. See Ref-34, Eckart Schmidt, QFG#2176, #2177.
QL-Tf6 maps the vertices of QL-Tr2 into the line at infinity. See Ref-34, Eckart Schmidt, QFG#2176, #2177.
