Basic Parameters of the Exeter Point

Given a triangle , the Exeter point of is the perspector of the tangential triangle (shown in purple) and the circumcevian triangle (shown in orange) of the centroid of [1].
Let , , be the exact trilinear coordinates of with respect to and .
Let , , be the side lengths; , , be the circumradius, inradius and semiperimeter of ; and .
Let the parameters , , , be the Conway notation, where is the Brocard angle.
Then
,
,
.
You can drag the vertices , and .

DETAILS

A triangle center is said to be even when its barycentric coordinates can be expressed as a function of three variables , , that all occur with even exponents. If the center of a triangle has constant barycentric coordinates, it is called a neutral center (the centroid is the only neutral center). A triangle center is said to be odd if it is neither even nor neutral.
Standard barycentric coordinates of a point with respect to a reference triangle have a sum of 1.
