QA-Tf12: QA-Pedal Point

The QA-Pedal Point is defined as follows.
• The 3 Pedal Points of P wrt a Triangle define a Pedal Circle Ci.
• In a Quadrangle the 4 Pedal Circles Ci (denoted as Ci1, Ci2, Ci3, Ci4) of the Component Triangles intersect at a common point being the QA-Pedal Point.

Properties:

• Every point on a side of a Quadrangle is transformed in the projection point on the opposite side of the Quadrangle.
QA-Tf12 has the vertices of the Diagonal Triangle as fixed poins. See Ref-34, QFG#1231.
QA-P4 is transformed into QA-P2. See Ref-34, QFG#1219.
• Not only QA-P4 is transformed into QA-P2, but all points of the QA-Orthogonal Hyperbola QA-Co2. See Ref-34, QFG#1231.
QA-Tf12(P) = CO-Tf3-1(P) wrt the conic(P1,P2,P3,P4,P), where P1, P2,P3, P4 are the vertices of the Reference Quadrangle (personal mail Benedetto Scimemi and see Ref-34, QFG#1252).
QA-P12 can be generalized as the transformation nP-e-Tf1 in an n-Point (system of n reference points). It matches with nP-e-Tf1 when n=4. See Ref-34, QFG#2759.
• Given a Pentangle {P1, P2, P3, P4, P5}.
Let A1 = QA-Tf14 (P1) wrt {P2,P3,P4,P5}; similarly we define A2, A3, A4, A5.
Let B1 = QA-Tf12 (P1) wrt {P2,P3,P4,P5}; similarly we define B2, B3, B4, B5.
Then two pentangle {P1,P2,P3,P4,P5}, {A1,A2,A3,A4,A5} are inversely similar and the two pentangles {A1,A2,A3,A4,A5}, {B1, B2, B3, B4. B5} are homothetic with the center of the circumconic of {P1,P2,P3,P4,P5} as homothetic center. The circumconics of {P1,P2,P3,P4,P5}, {A1,A2,A3,A4,A5} and {B1, B2, B3, B4. B5} are similar and share the same center. See Vu Thunh Tang at Ref-59b.
