Via simulation, we revisit the Poncelet family of “harmonic polygons”, much studied in the 2nd half of the XIX century by famous geometers such as Simmons, Tarry, Neuberg, Casey, and others. We review its (inversive and projective) construction, identify some new conservations, and contrast it, via its invariants, to several other recently studied Poncelet families.
Keywords: Harmonic polygon, Poncelet, Brocard, invariants, projection, homothetic, inversion, symmetric polynomials.
