Kirby Urner writes in part: 'Nevertheless, Brian Scott and Robin
Chapman, both very knowledgable mathematicians active on sci.math,
have handed down their decision that quadrays are a subclass
of barycentric coordinates.'

Prof. Chapman will have to speak for himself, but this is an
inaccurate paraphrase of my actual statement that quadrays are
essentially just barycentric coordinates. Since they obviously differ
in detail - including the one that gives barycentric coordinates their
name! - they are certainly not a subclass thereof.
