A rational parameterization of an algebraic curve yields a rational correspondence between this curve and the affine or projective line. One of the parameterization methods is based on finding all singular points and d-3 simple points of an implicitly given curve of degree d. In this paper, we study some modifications of this well-known algorithm, which are then verified on several examples.
Keywords: Algebraic curve, singular points, genus, rational parameterization, quadratic transformation.
