  Incircle and excircles of a triangle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An excircle or escribed circle of the triangle is a circle lying outside the triangle, tangent to one of its sides and tangent to the extensions of the other two.
The center of an excircle is the intersection of the internal bisector of one angle and the external bisectors of the other two.
The radii of the in- and excircles are closely related to the area of the triangle.

 Excircle
In geometry an excircle or escribed circle of a triangle is a circle lying outside the triangle, tangent to one of its sides and tangent to the extensions of the other two sides.
Every triangle has three distinct excircles, each tangent to the side of the triangle it is associated with.
The center of an excircle lies on the internal bisector of one angle and the external bisectors of the other two.

 Nine-point circle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1822 Karl Feuerbach discovered that any triangle's nine-point circle is externally tangent to that triangle's three excircles and internally tangent to its incircle.
If an orthocentric system of four points is given, then the four triangles formed by any combination of three distinct points of that system all have the same nine-point circle.
The centers of the incircle and excircles of a corresponding triangle form an orthocentric system.

 Incircles and Excircles in a Triangle
From the just derived formulas it follows that the points of tangency of the incircle and an excircle with a side of a triangle are symmetric with respect to the midpoint of the side.
The cevians joinging the two points to the opposite vertex are also said to be isotomic.
For the incircle, the point is Gergonne'; for the points of excircle tangency, the point is Nagel's.

A beautiful relationship also exists within the pentagon in that the chord of the pentagon is the geometric mean between the extremes of the height of the pentagon and the diameter of the pentagon's excircle.
Taking their half-lengths, GN and GB, we can generate two circles; that is, the circumscribing circle commonly termed the excircle, and a second circle that is inscribed within the pentagon and tangent to the sides internally, called the incircle.

This is an arrangement-independent version of the well-known fact that a quadrilateral ABCD has an incircle if and only if AB + CD = BC + DA, and of all pendants of this fact related to excircles and concave quadrilaterals.
Concerning your comment, Peter, one doesn't need imaginary radii, but it's indeed impossible to distinguish between "incircles" and "excircles" in general.
