Given a triangle , the Kimberling center is the center of homothety of the tangential, intangents and extangents triangles .

The sides of the tangential triangle are tangent to the circumcircle of at , , . See the related links for the definitions of the intangents and extangents triangles.

The point is on the line , where and are the incenter and circumcenter of .

Let , , be the side lengths, , , be the circumradius, inradius and semiperimeter of , , , , be the exact trilinear coordinates of with respect to and .

Then

&LeftBracketingBar;AX55&RightBracketingBar;=R(b c(R+r)-R r(4 R+r))R+r,

da=a(s-a)2(R+r),

dX55=r(4 R+r)R+r.

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.
