This can be used in mass points. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/BarycentricCoordinates.html This article is a stub. Help us out by expanding it.
Barycentric coordinates are triples of numbers corresponding to masses placed at the vertices of a reference triangle . These masses then determine a point , which is the geometric centroid of the three masses and is identified with coordinates . The vertices of the triangle are given by , , and . Barycentric coordinates were discovered by Möbius in 1827 (Coxeter 1969, p. 217; Fauvel et al. 1993).
