Denote by H(n) the n^{th} barycentric power of the incenter X(1). For instance H(0) = X(2), H(2) = X(6), H(–1) = X(75). Let F(n) = H(n) × X(385) and G(n) = H(n) ÷ X(385), barycentric product and quotient of H(n) and X(385). Consider now the two pivotal cubics pK1(n) = pK(F(2n + 2), H(n)) and pK2(n) = pK(G(2n + 2), G(n)). Their isopivots are F(n + 2), H(n + 2) and their tertiary pivots are F(n+2) × X(5207), H(n + 2) × X(5207) respectively. These points obviously lie on the curves. It is clear that pK1(0) = K252 and pK2(0) = K354., the isogonal transform of K252. These two families of cubics are connected in many ways. • they are stable under barycentric multiplication (and division) by X(1) : pK1(n) × X(1) = pK1(n + 1) and pK2(n) × X(1) = pK2(n + 1). • pK1(n) is the barycentric product pK2(n) × X(385). • the isotomic transform of pK1(n) is tpK1(n) = pK2(– n – 2). In other words, if n + m = –2 then pK1(n) and pK2(m) are isotomic transforms of each other. In particular, with n = m = –1, we find K862 and K863. • the isogonal transform of pK1(n) is gpK1(n) = pK2(– n). In other words, if n + m = 0 then pK1(n) and pK2(m) are isogonal transforms of each other. In particular, with n = m = 0, we find K252 and K354. • more generally, pK2(n) is the transform of pK1(n) under the isoconjugation with pole H(2n + 2). For instance, if n = m = 1 hence H(4) = X(32), we find K861 and K864. *** The following diagram shows a selection of these cubics.

Other related cubics : • the GHirst inverses of K354, K356 are K322, K738 respectively. • the anticomplement of K252 is pK(X2, X5207) passing through X(2), X(4), X(69), X(147), X(1031), X(2896). • under the symbolic substitution SS{a –> a^2}, K251, K767, K774 are transformed into the pK1 cubics K252, K356, pK(X1501 × X385, X6) and K769, K135, K772 are transformed into the pK2 cubics K354, K532, pK(X560 x X385, X292).
