Abstract

Wu’s Method for proving geometric theorems is well known. We investigate the underlying algorithms involved, including the concepts of pseudodivision, Ritt’s Principle and Ritt’s Decomposition algorithm. A simple implementation for these algorithms in Maple is presented, which we then use to prove a few simple geometric theorems to illustrate the method.
