The circumcircle of a triangle is the unique circle on which all its three vertices lie.
The useful minimum bounding circle of three points is defined either by the circumcircle (where three points are on the minimum bounding circle) or by the two points of the longest side of the triangle (where the two points define a diameter of the circle.).

Similarly, find the reflection of BP in the bisector of B and that of CP in the bisector of C. It's a curious fact that the three lines thus obtained are parallel.
The feet of the perpendiculars from points outside the circumcircle to the sides of the triangle are not colinear.
As P moves over the circumcircle, the point of intersection of the two lines traces a circle, the 9-point circle in the case of the (regular) Simson lines.

 Orthocenter
One thing that may not be immedaitely obvious to the reader, is that if the Point A was moved around the circle holding B and C stationary, the orthocenter would follow the path of this circle.
Well, an easy answer is that we know know that RQ is a chord of the circumcircle, and that the line from A perpendicular to RQ must not only bisect RQ, but pass through the center of the circle.
Stated another way, a radius of the circumcircle to a vertex of ABC is perpendicular to the side of the double-orthic triangle.

And while the Schröder point Sc is the inverse of X(55), the internal center of similtude of circumcircle and incircle, in the circumcircle of ABC, the Bevan-Schröder point Sb is the inverse of X(56), the external center of similtude of circumcircle and incircle, in the circumcircle of ABC.
The internal and external centers of similtude of the circumcircle and the incircle are poristically fixed.
By inversion in the circumcircle, this yields that the Schröder point and the Bevan-Schröder point are poristically fixed (what means that all triangles which share the same circumcircle and the same incircle have the same Schröder point and the same Bevan-Schröder point).

[For nonzero n, "odd (m,n) circumcircle point" is would be a misnomer (as the point is an even polynomial center); consequently, the prefix o- is used to distinguish this point from "even (m,n) circumcircle point" defined at X(696).] Certain points of these classes occur prior to this section.

The Gergonne and Nagel points are on the Feuerbach hyperbola since their isogonal conjugates are the centers of similitudes of the circumcircle and the incircle.
The isodynamic points X(15), X(16) are the intersection of the Parry circle (2,110,111) and the Brocard axis OK. The two points are inverses with respect to the circumcircle, and X(15) is the interior one.

 Circumcircle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A circle that passes through each of the vertices of a polygon is called the circumcircle of the polygon.The center of that circle is the circumcenter.Both seem to be truncations of the prefix “circumscribing” attached to the words circle or center.The word circumcircle was suggested in 1883 by W. Hudson in Nature Magazine, according to
Because the circumcenter must be the same distance from each of the vertices, and because each side of the polygon is a chord of the circle, it is easy to understand that the circumcircle must be at the intersection of the perpendicular bisectors of the sides of the polygon.
Steiner's theorem, pictured at right, gives a relationship between the radii of five important circles in any triangle, the cirucmcircle, the incircle, and the three excircles (circles tangent to the three sides (or sides extended) of a triangle on the outside of the triangle.

These are all the named centers known to lie on the circle.

These lines pass through 2 certain fixed points on the image of the circumcircle, which are the images of the reflections of H in CA, AB by the given inversion (call these fixed images Xb and Xc).
Therefore, they have two common points (namely the point H and their second point of concurrence on the circumcircle of triangle ABC), meaning that they are coaxal.
I tried to prove that the circumcircles of HA1A2 and HB1B2 and HC1C2 have another common point beyond H.(its obvious that this is the same as what the problem mentions).Then i inverted through H with the power HA.HA''(A'' is the foot of the altitude from A).

In any triangle ABC, the distance from the circumcircle center to BC is half of the distance from the orthocenter to A. The radius of the circumcircle is less than half of the radius of the incircle for any triangle.
If c is the radius of the circumcircle, i is the radius of the incircle of one triangele, and the distance between the centers of these circles is d, then d
The distance from a triangle vertex to the orthocenter is twice the distance from the circumcircle center to the opposite side.

However, the most useful method is to generate the points simultaneously with the triangulation, choosing the points to improve the quality of the triangles [30].
Quality is defined by (e.g.) size of circumcircle relative to the locally required value interpolated from a background grid.
In a constrained Delaunay triangulation the pre-defined edges are in the triangulation and the empty circumcircle property is modified to apply only to points that can be `seen' from at least one node of the triangle, where the pre-defined edges are treated as opaque.
