In this paper we investigate the problem of determining rational parametrizations of plane algebraic curves over an algebraic extension of least degree over the field of definition. This problem reduces to the problem of finding simple points with coordinates in the field of definition on algebraic curves of genus 0. Consequently we are also able to decide… (More)

A rational parametrization of an algebraic curve establishes a rational correspondence of this curve with the affine or projective line. This correspondence is a birational equivalence if the parametrization is proper. So, intuitively speaking, a rational parametrization determines a linear tracing of the curve, when the parameter takes values in the… (More)

It is well known that an irreducible algebraic curve is rational (i.e. parametric) if and only if its genus is zero. In this paper, given a tolerance ǫ > 0 and an ǫ-irreducible algebraic affine plane curve C of proper degree d, we introduce the notion of ǫ-rationality, and we provide an algorithm to parametrize approximately affine ǫ-rational plane curves,… (More)

The degree of a rational map measures how often the map covers the image variety. In particular, when the rational map is a parametrization, the degree measures how often the parametrization traces the image. We show how the degree of rational maps between algebraic curves can be determined efficiently. In the process, we also give a complete proof of… (More)

If algebraic varieties like curves or surfaces are to be manipulated by computers, it is essential to be able to represent these geometric objects in an appropriate way. For some applications an implicit representation by algebraic equations is desirable, whereas for others an explicit or parametric representation is more suitable. Therefore, transformation… (More)

A very important property of the usual pinhole model for camera projection is that 3D lines in the scene are projected in 2D lines. Unfortunately, wide-angle lenses (specially low-cost lenses) may introduce a strong barrel distortion which makes the usual pinhole model fail. Lens distortion models try to correct such distortion. In this paper, we propose an… (More)
