The representation of the Euclidean plane as the Cartesian product \(\mathbb R^2\) allows us to decompose any vector of the plane into two coordinates, its abscissa and its ordinate. This decomposition is linked to a particular and natural “representation...

Vector angles are the usual oriented angles of Euclidean plane geometry. Thanks to the resources of naive set theory, they can be defined purely algebraically using an equivalence relation and the vectorial rotations of the plane. The operation of composing rotations...

The definition of a circle is simple: it is a set of points located at the same distance from a given point. This distance is called the radius and this point is called the centre of the circle. The circle with centre \((-1,-3/2)\) and radius \(\sqrt 6\) 1. Circles as...
