Homothety

In mathematics, a homothety (or homothecy) is a transformation of space which dilates distances with respect to a fixed point. Such a transformation is also called an enlargement. A homothety with center $H$ and factor $k$ sends point $A$ to a point $A' \ni HA'=k\cdot HA$ This is denoted by $\mathcal{H}(H, k)$.
