A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z overview

The equation

$\displaystyle \vert z-a\vert = \vert z-b\vert

describes the perpendicular bisector of the line segment $ [a,b]$ in the Gaussian plane.


In parametric representation, this line is given by

$\displaystyle \frac{a+b}{2} + \mathrm{i}(b-a)t,\quad
