**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)).

**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.
