BICIRCULAR ALGEBRAIC CURVE
An algebraic curve is said to be bicircular if the cyclic points (1, i,0) and (1, -i, 0), in the complex projective plane, are at least double points of the curve.
The necessary and sufficient condition is that the polynomial formed by the terms of highest degree n of its Cartesian equation be divisible by and that the one formed by the terms of degree n - 1 be divisible by .
See bicircular quartic for the case of quartics.
See also multicircular.
