Given a triangle , the Kimberling center is the intersection of the Brocard axis of the triangles , , , (where is the incenter ) [1]. The Brocard axis is the line joining the symmedian point and the circumcenter of .

Introduce the parameters , , and in Conway notation, where is the Brocard angle.

Then

## 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.
