Van Lamoen circle
In Euclidean plane geometry, the van Lamoen circle is a special circle associated with any given triangle . It contains the circumcenters of the six triangles that are defined inside by its three medi
Incircle and excircles of a triangle
In geometry, the incircle or inscribed circle of a triangle is the largest circle that can be contained in the triangle; it touches (is tangent to) the three sides. The center of the incircle is a tri
Spieker circle
In geometry, the incircle of the medial triangle of a triangle is the Spieker circle, named after 19th-century German geometer Theodor Spieker. Its center, the Spieker center, in addition to being the
Fuhrmann circle
In geometry, the Fuhrmann circle of a triangle, named after the German Wilhelm Fuhrmann (1833–1904), is the circle with a diameter of the line segment between the orthocenter and the Nagel point . Thi
Brocard circle
In geometry, the Brocard circle (or seven-point circle) is a circle derived from a given triangle. It passes through the circumcenter and symmedian of the triangle, and is centered at the midpoint of
Orthocentroidal circle
In geometry, the orthocentroidal circle of a non-equilateral triangle is the circle that has the triangle's orthocenter and centroid at opposite ends of its diameter. This diameter also contains the t
Circumscribed circle
In geometry, the circumscribed circle or circumcircle of a polygon is a circle that passes through all the vertices of the polygon. The center of this circle is called the circumcenter and its radius
Polar circle (geometry)
In geometry, the polar circle of a triangle is the circle whose center is the triangle's orthocenter and whose squared radius is where A, B, C denote both the triangle's vertices and the angle measure
Nine-point circle
In geometry, the nine-point circle is a circle that can be constructed for any given triangle. It is so named because it passes through nine significant concyclic points defined from the triangle. The
GEOS circle
In geometry, the GEOS circle is derived from the intersection of four lines that are associated with a generalized triangle: the Euler line, the Soddy line, the orthic axis and the . Note that the Eul
Malfatti circles
In geometry, the Malfatti circles are three circles inside a given triangle such that each circle is tangent to the other two and to two sides of the triangle. They are named after Gian Francesco Malf
