SEXTIC

A sextic is an algebraic curve of degree 6.

For examples of rational sextics, see the next page.

Example of non-rational sextics: the curve of the dipole, the radial curve of the ellipse,
the three-bar linkage curve, the conchoids of circles, the base of the slider-crank mechanism, the Beutel heart.
