Description

L2Coordinates is a package for variuous coordinates in the hyperbolic plane. It is a kind of upgrade to the package L2Primitives which is necessary to run L2Coordinates.

The supported coordinates are polar, equidistant and horocyclic. Their coordinate lines are circles and lines; equidstant and lines; horocycles and lines, respectively.

It is well known that there doesn't exist an orthogonal coordinate system with only lines being a coordinate lines. Hence, the supported coordinate systems are among the simplest in the hyperbolic plane.
