Topic: Karl Wilhelm Feuerbach

  What became of Karl Feuerbach
Karl, the third son in a family of eleven children, was born in Jena on May 30, 1800.
Karl studied at both the University of Erlangen and the University of Freiburg, and in 1822 published his little book containing the beautiful theorem.
Karl was appointed professor of mathematics at the Gymnasium at Hof, but before long he suffered a breakdown and was forced to give up his teaching.

 Feuerbach's Theorem: What Is It About?
This is a famous result discovered by Karl Wilhelm Feuerbach (1800-1834): the 9-point circle of a triangle touches its incircle and the three excircles.
Feuerbach proved the theorem by computing algebraically the distances between the centers of the circles.
The points of tangency in Feuerbach's theorem are involved in two cases of incidence.

Feuerbach was a geometer who discovered the nine point circle of a triangle.
Feuerbach also proved that the nine point circle touches the inscribed and three escribed circles of the triangle.
These results appear in his 1822 paper, and it is on the strength of this one paper that Feuerbach's fame is based.

 Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Feuerbach sent a copy of the dissertation to Hegel hoping for his approval but inadvisably added a letter in which he offered the very unHegelian opinion that the attempt to comprehend Christianity as the consummate religion, as Hegel had done, was bound to fail.
Feuerbach argues that Hegel's speculative metaphysics of "pure spirit" really must be understood as the culmination of movement that originated in the speculative theology of the Middle Ages when the naïve notion of a personal deity was conceptualized as an infinite, omniscient, omni-benevolent, necessary being.
Feuerbach had concluded from this that one of the most important philosophical and cultural tasks of his generation was to revise the way human beings thinking about the relationship of mind to nature because it was the notion of "spirit" that was crucial to both idealism and Christianity.

 KARL WILHELM FEUERBACH   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
One of the most striking theorems in triangle geometry is Feuerbach's theorem, that the nine-point circle is tangent to the incircle and all three excircles.
Feuerbach was born to a distinguished German family, sufficiently many of whom exhibited both genius and mental illness for there to be a book on this subject (below).
Feuerbach held mathematics positions at the Gymnasiums in Erlangen, and after a period of imprisonment, in Hof, and in 1828, after a relapse of his illness, again in Erlangen.

 Feuerbach biography
Karl Feuerbach's father Paul J A Ritter von Feuerbach who was a professor of law and wrote the Bavarian criminal code.
Of his 8 children 5 sons were to be awarded a doctorate, 3 of them becoming a professor, the most famous being the philosopher (without ever being professor) Ludwig A Feuerbach (1804-72) who was one of the very influential critics of religion and thus of great importance for Marx and marxism.
He must therefore be considered as the joint inventor of homogeneous coordinates since Möbius, in his work Der barycentrische Calcul also published in 1827, introduced homogeneous coordinates into analytic geometry.

Unlike many other mathematicians, Feuerbach's career in math was quite short-lived, 6 years.
His main area of study was geometry, and what he was most known for was his work with the nine point circle.
Not to say that Feuerbach was the first and last to do work on the nine point circle, there were also others who shared his interests: Brianchon and Poncelet also published a proof of this theorem a year before Feuerbach did.

 MathLinks Math Forums :: View topic - Circles [proof of Feuerbach's theorem]
The nine-point circle (also called Euler circle or Feuerbach circle) of any triangle is tangent to the incircle and to the three excircles of the triangle.
In my note "Generalization of the Feuerbach point" on my triangle geometry website, I give two non-inversive proofs of the fact that the nine-point circle touches the incircle (the proof for the excircles is analogous), but these proofs are very long.
The two tangents from the point X' to the incircle of triangle ABC touch this incircle at the points X and Q. Thus, these points X and Q are symmetric to each other with respect to the line X'O (since O is the center of the incircle of triangle ABC).

 History of the Nine Point Circle
First enunciation of Feuerbach's Theorem, including the first published proof, appears in Karl Wilhelm Feuerbach's Eigenschaften einiger merkwiirdigen Punkte des geradlinigen Dreiecks, along with many other interesting proofs relating to the nine point circle.
In an article, Symmetrical Properties of Plane Triangles, published in the Philosophical Magazine (1827), II, pages 29-31, T. Davies proves the characteristic property of the nine point circle and remarks that the centroid is situated on the line which contains the orthocenter, the nine-point center, and the circumcenter.
MacKay mentions and gives reference to numerous demonstrations of Feuerbach's theorem in his extensive article pertaining to the history of the nine point circle.

The center of the Nine Point Circle is the midpoint of the segment from the Orthocenter to the Circumcenter.
The circle is also called Feuerbach's Circle after Karl Wilhelm Feuerbach who showed in an 1822 paper that the circle "touches all four of the circles which are tangent to the three sides of the triangle, and specifically, it touches the inscribed circle internally and the escribed circles externally."
We now know the circle contains even more than these nine points, but also contains the midpoint of the two Fermat Points, and the center of the
