Given a triangle and a point , the pedal triangle of is formed by the feet of the perpendiculars from to the sides . The circumcircle of the pedal triangle is called the pedal circle of (shown in black).[more]
The McCay–Griffiths cubic of is the set of all points such that the pedal circle of is tangent to the nine-point circle (shown in green) of . Its pivot point is the circumcenter (Kimberling center ).
Let , , be the side lengths; , , the parameters of in Conway triangle notation and , , the excenters of .
Then the equation of the McCay–Griffiths cubic of in barycentric coordinates is
where the sum is cyclic over all six permutations of , , .
The McCay–Griffiths cubic passes through the points , , and the Kimberling centers , , , , , , .
You can drag the vertices , , and the point .[less]
