Inscribed Equilateral Triangles.

Abstract
Article
*If equilateral triangles are inscribed in an irregular triangle in such a way that each edge (or its extension) of the latter contains a distinct vertex of each equilateral triangle, the centers of the equilateral triangles must lie on one of two lines, each of which is orthogonal to the Euler line of the irregular triangle.

in the setting has the same property as the three conics theorem and it takes the three conics in the model as a special case. Interesting corollaries are discussed as well.*

On Some Geometric Relations of a Triangle.

Abstract
Article
*
For a triangle
$\mathrm{ABC}$ we consider the circles passing through a vertex of the triangle and tangent to the oppisite side as well as to the circumcircle.
We prove that
$\genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{1}{{r}_{a}}}+{\displaystyle \genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{1}{{r}_{b}}}+{\displaystyle \genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{1}{{r}_{c}}}={\displaystyle \genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{2}{R}}+{\displaystyle \genfrac{}{}{0.1ex}{}{1}{r}$, where
${r}_{a}$,
${r}_{b}$,
${r}_{c}$ are the radii of the these three circles, and
$R$,
$r$ are the circumradius and the inradius of the triangle
$\mathrm{ABC}$,
respectively. This equation generalizes the main result from [1].

Parabolas and families of convex quadrangles.

Abstract
Article
*In this article we study some parabolas naturally associated with a generic convex quadrangle. It is shown that the quadrangle defines, through these parabolas, a one-parameter-family of quadrangles, containing the quadrangle of reference. The members of this family share the same diagonal lines, Newton line and ratio of diagonals. In addition it is shown that this family contains a unique cyclic quadrangle.*

One property of the Jerabek hyperbola and its corollaries, pp. 53—56.

Abstract
Article
*We study the locus of the points P having the following property: if
A*_{1}B_{1}C_{1}
is the circumcevian triangle of P with respect to the given triangle ABC, and
A_{2},
B_{2},
C_{2}
are the reflections of A_{1}, B_{1}, C_{1} in BC, CA, AB, respectively, then the triangles ABC and A_{2}B_{2}C_{2} are perspective.
We show that this locus consists of the infinite line and the Jerabek hyperbola of ABC. This fact yields some interesting corollaries.

*Ilya I. Bogdanov*, Two theorems on the focus-sharing ellipses: a three-dimensional view, pp. 1—5.

Abstract
Article
*Consider three ellipses each two of which share a common focus.
The “radical axes” of the pairs of these ellipses are concurrent, and the points of
intersection of the common tangents to the pairs of these ellipses are
collinear.*

We present short synthetical proofs of these facts. Both proofs deal with the
prolate spheroids having the given ellipses as axial sections.

To any pair of perspective triangles we assign a family F of projective transformations such that image of the second
triangle under any transformation from F is perspective to the first triangle. This helps us to solve some interesting

Abstract

Let A*_{1}, B_{1}, C_{1} be points chosen on the sidelines BC, CA, BA of a triangle ABC, respectively. The circumcircles
of triangles AB_{1}C_{1}, BC_{1}A_{1}, CA_{1}B_{1} intersect the circumcircle of triangle ABC again at points A_{2}, B_{2}, C_{2}
respectively. We prove that triangle A_{2}B_{2}C_{2} is similar to triangle A_{3}B_{3}C_{3}, where A_{3}, B_{3}, C_{3} are symmetric to A_{1},
B_{1},C_{1} with respect to the midpoints of the sides BC, CA, BA respectively.

We discuss Vittas’s theorem, which states that the Euler lines of non-equilateral triangles ABP, BCP,
CDP and DAP in a cyclic quadrilateral ABCD, whose diagonals AC and BD intersect at P, are concurrent or are pairwise parallel or coincident. We also introduce and prove the converse of these theorems.

Abstract
Article
*
The symmedian point of a triangle is known to give rise to two circles, obtained by drawing respectively parallels and antiparallels to the sides of the triangle through the symmedian point. In this note we will explore a third circle with a similar construction — discovered by Jean-Pierre Ehrmann. It is obtained by drawing circles through the symmedian point and two vertices of the triangle, and intersecting these circles with the triangle’s sides. We prove the existence of this circle and identify its center and radius.

A new synthetic proof of the following fact is given: if three points A′, B′, C′ are the apices of
isosceles directly-similar triangles BCA′, CAB′, ABC′ erected on the sides BC, CA, AB of a triangle
ABC, then the lines AA′, BB′, CC′ concur. Also we prove some interesting properties of the Kiepert hyperbola which is the locus of concurrence points, and of the Grinberg–Myakishev hyperbola which is its generalization.
