Using Maple’s RegularChains Library to Automatically Classify Plane Geometric Loci
We report a preliminary discussion on the usability of the RegularChains library of Maple for the automatic computation of plane geometric loci and envelopes in graphical interactive environments. We describe a simple implementation of a recently proposed taxonomy of algebraic loci, and its extension to envelopes of families of curves is also discussed. Furthermore, we sketch how currently unsolvable problems in interactive environments can be approached by using the RegularChains library.
