Two dynamical systems in the space of triangles

Cornell university preprint series. Arxiv. math. Cornell university, 2021. No. 2101.03734.
Let M be the space of triangles, defined up to shifts, rotations and dilations. We define two maps f:M->M and g:M->M.  The map f corresponds to a triangle of perimeter pi the triangle with angles numerically equal to edges of the initial triangle. The map g corresponds to a triangle of perimeter 2pi the triangle with exterior angles numerically equal to edges of the initial triangle. For p in M the sequence {p,f(p),f(f(p)),...} converges to the equilateral triangle and the sequence {p,g(p),g(g(p)),...} converges to the "degenerate triangle" with angles (0,0,pi). In Supplement an analogous problem about inscribed-circumscribed quadrangles is discussed.
