The name Tschirnhaus's cubic is given in R C Archibald's paper written in 1900 where he attempted to classify curves.
Tschirnhaus's cubic is the negative pedal of a parabola with respect to the focus of the parabola.
The caustic of Tschirnhaus's cubic where the radiant point is the pole is Neile's semi-cubic parabola .
