Modern triangle geometry
In mathematics, modern triangle geometry, or new triangle geometry, is the body of knowledge relating to the properties of a triangle discovered and developed roughly since the beginning of the last q
Kiepert conics
In triangle geometry, the Kiepert conics are two special conics associated with the reference triangle. One of them is a hyperbola, called the Kiepert hyperbola and the other is a parabola, called the

In triangle geometry, a circumcevian triangle is a special triangle associated with the reference triangle and a point in the plane of the triangle. It is also associated with the circumcircle of the
Congruent number
In number theory, a congruent number is a positive integer that is the area of a right triangle with three rational number sides. A more general definition includes all positive rational numbers with
Mass point geometry
Mass point geometry, colloquially known as mass points, is a geometry problem-solving technique which applies the physical principle of the center of mass to geometry problems involving triangles and
Orthologic triangles
In geometry, two triangles are said to be orthologic triangles if the perpendiculars from the vertices of one of them to the corresponding sides of the other are concurrent. This is a symmetric proper
Hart circle
The Hart circle is externally tangent to and internally tangent to incircles of the associated triangles ,,, or the other way around. The Hart circle was discovered by Andrew Searle Hart. There are ei
Orthocentric system
In geometry, an orthocentric system is a set of four points on a plane, one of which is the orthocenter of the triangle formed by the other three. If four points form an orthocentric system, then each
List of triangle topics
This list of triangle topics includes things related to the geometric shape, either abstractly, as in idealizations studied by geometers, or in triangular arrays such as Pascal's triangle or triangula
Triangular coordinates

In mathematics and particularly in elementary geometry, a circumgon is a geometric figure which circumscribes some circle, in the sense that it is the union of the outer edges of non-overlapping trian
Bernoulli quadrisection problem
In triangle geometry, the Bernoulli quadrisection problem asks how to divide a given triangle into four equal-area pieces by two perpendicular lines. Its solution by Jacob Bernoulli was published in 1
Feuerbach hyperbola
In geometry, the Feuerbach hyperbola is a rectangular hyperbola passing through important triangle centers such as the Orthocenter, Gergonne point, Nagel point and Shiffler point. The center of the hy

Similar to a Pythagorean triple, an Eisenstein triple (named after Gotthold Eisenstein) is a set of integers which are the lengths of the sides of a triangle where one of the angles is 60 or 120 degre
In geometry, the semiperimeter of a polygon is half its perimeter. Although it has such a simple derivation from the perimeter, the semiperimeter appears frequently enough in formulas for triangles an

In geometry, a set of Johnson circles comprises three circles of equal radius r sharing one common point of intersection H. In such a configuration the circles usually have a total of four intersectio
Sum of angles of a triangle
In a Euclidean space, the sum of angles of a triangle equals the straight angle (180 degrees, π radians, two right angles, or a half-turn).A triangle has three angles, one at each vertex, bounded by a
