A presentation of the barycentric coordinates of the orthocenter of an Euclidean triangle is given. It is based on a certain general polynomial identity which can be deduced from the residue theorem.

The text is pretty brief but complete. A future extension should perhaps contain a comparison with classical descriptions of the barycentric coordinates of the orthocenter. However, everybody make take this as an exercise.

The text provides a formula for the Euler-Poncelet point in complex coordinates.

We don't prove (yet) that the formula yields the Euler-Poncelet point. However we show that it yields a "quadrangle center".

An appendix discusses a general feature of plane "polygon centers". This may serve as an alternative introduction to my text The holomorphic extension of triangle functions (2004).
