all the related points of the Thomson cubic with respect to the orthic triangle

K350 is the Thomson cubic of the orthic triangle. It is the pK with pole X(3199), pivot H, invariant in the isoconjugation which swaps H and X(51), the centroid of the orthic triangle.

It has the same asymptotic directions as pK(X6, X2979).

It is the isogonal transform of K646 = pK(X97, X95).

K350 is the locus of the pseudo-poles Ω of the stelloids psK60+ which have their asymptotes parallel to those of the McCay cubic K003. The corresponding pseudo-pivots P and pseudo-isopivots P* lie on K045 and K350 respectively.

More precisely, for any Ω on K350, the cubic psK(Ω, P, X4) where P is the anticomplement of the barycentric quotient X(51)÷Ω, is one of these stelloids.

The radial center X lies on the image of K044 under the homothety h(X5, 1/3).

For example, with Ω = X(4), X(5), X(6), X(51), X(53) we find the cubics K028, K071, K003, K026, K049 respectively.
