QA-Cu6: QA-P1-Involution Center Cubic


This cubic is the locus of the involution centers of all lines passing through QA-P1 (Quadrangle-Centroid). So it is the locus of Midpoints of the Involutary Conjugates on the cubic QA-Cu5.
The involution is created by the intersection points of the QA-P1-line with the sides of Quadrigon P1.P2.P3.P4 (see chapter QA-Tf1: QA-Line Involution)
QA-P22, the Reflection of the Midpoint (QA-P1,QA-P5) in QA-P1 also lies on the cubic.
Similar cubics can be constructed by taking involution centers of lines passing through another point than QA-P1. The other 2 QA-quadrigons deliver the same cubic. This makes the cubic a real QA-Cubic.

Properties:
  • The vertices of the Quadrangle and the Midpoints of the Diagonal triangle and QA-P1, QA-P22 lie on this cubic.
  • The intersection point QA-P1.QA-P6 ^ QA-P22.QA-P29 lies on this cubic.
  • The intersection points of the lines through QA-P1 parallel to the QA-sidelines with the opposite sidelines all lie on this cubic.
