Steiner Chain Inversion
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
Steiner chains are sequentially tangent circles inscribed between concentric circles. Their inversions and the outer product of further inversions are shown for variations of the initial configuration. Circles remain circles under inversion, as long as lines are treated as circles of infinite radius.
