We apply algorithms from computer algebra to the analysis, and manipulation of algebraic curves. To a large extent this amounts to being able to represent these algebraic curves in different ways, such as implicitly by defining polynomials, parametrically by rational functions, or locally parametrically by power series expansions around a point.

These representations all have their individual advantages; an implicit representation lets us decide easily whether a given point actually lies on a given curve, a parametric representation allows us to generate points of a given curve over the desired coordinate fields, and with the help of a power series expansion we can for instance overcome the numerical problems of tracing a curve through a singularity. The central problem in this book is the determination of rational parametrizability of a curve, and, in case it exists, the computation of a good rational parametrization.

This amounts to determining the genus of a curve, i. Various optimality criteria for rational parametrizations of algebraic curves are discussed. We also point to some applications of these techniques in computer aided geometric design. Many of the symbolic algorithmic methods described in our book are implemented in the program system CASA, which is based on the computer algebra system Maple. Our book is mainly intended for graduate students specializing in constructive algebraic curve geometry. We hope that researchers wanting to get a quick overview of what can be done with algebraic curves in terms of symbolic algebraic computation will also find this book helpful.

CASA is a special-purpose system for computational algebra and constructive algebraic geometry. The system has been developed since , and is the ongoing product of the Computer Algebra Group under the direction of Prof.
