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