Pari/GP Geometry

This is some coordinate geometry functions for Pari/GP. Most are fairly simple lengths, areas, and inertia. Calculations are kept exact using quads as much as possible. See the comments in geom.gp and geom-inertia.gp for details.

read("geom.gp");
geom_area_of_polygon([0, 1, 2+I, 1+2*I, I]) == 5/2
geom.gp is basic functions. The additional geom-inertia.gp has functions for mass moment of inertia represented in 3×3 matrices. Both are slightly preliminary in places, but do some useful things as far as they go.
