Figure 2 is another representation of the four-point collinear probe setup showing some of the circuit resistances.
Its lines are the [PHI]-orbits on the lines incident with x (where the trivial orbit {x} is excluded); its points are the [PHI]-orbits in the set of points not collinear with x.
r] using the four collinear points, and then from three of the points in the aligned image, we calculate the location of the fourth point in the aligned image using cross-ratio invariance of four collinear points.
During the rotation phase of the calipers the critical support lines are detected each time that both support lines are collinear (overlap each other), as in Fig.

Proposition (Pappus): If the three sides of a variable triangle are passing through three fixed, collinear points and two of its vertices are moving along two fixed lines, then the third vertex is moving along a line, which is passing through the intersection point of the first two lines.
This weak rotational excitation is indicative of the collinear transition state that is expected for the abstraction pathway; the observed feature of backward scattering is rather similar to that of F([sup.
