Tangent parameters --- Introduction ---

This module is a computational exercise of plane analytic geometry. The server generates a plane curve with one or two parameters, as well as a fixed line. You are asked to find the parameter values such taht the given line is a tangent to the curve.

This exercise accepts several configuration parameters which determine the aspect and the level of difficulty of the problem asked.
