Given a triangle , let , , be the midpoints of the sides , , . Then the three lines , , are called the medians and they intersect at a point called the centroid of [1].

## 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 are normalized to a sum of 1.
