centroid of intersetion of multiple circles

Hi,

I found a question like mine in this group [1] but it was not answered
and is very old.
So i want to ask again.
I have multiple circles with different radius each intersecting all
others. I want to calculate or approximate the centroid of the
intersecting area. The focus of the solution must be to find this or a
near point very fast.

I found some nice paper [2] but it seems not to work with all
possibilities and only with 3 circles.

Till now i think about calculating all points of intersection and
build the centroid of those points.

Please share some ideas with me on how to solve this problem without
to many calculations.

thanx in advance

Stefan
