Barycentric can refer to:

In astronomy,

  • Barycentric coordinates (astronomy), coordinates defined by the common center of mass of two or more bodies
  • Barycentric Dynamical Time, a former time standard in the Solar system
  • Barycentric Coordinate Time, a coordinate time standard in the Solar system
  • barycentre, the point between two objects where they balance each other

In geometry,

  • barycentric subdivision, a way of dividing a simplicial complex
  • Barycentric coordinates (mathematics), coordinates defined by the vertices of a simplex
