English term or phrase: locus
Definition from Wikipedia:
In mathematics, a locus (Latin for "place", plural loci) is a collection of points which share a property. The term locus is usually used of a condition which defines a continuous figure or figures, that is, a curve. For example, in two-dimensional space a line is the locus of points equidistant from two fixed points or from two parallel lines.

Example sentence(s):
  • We let a control point vary while the rest is held fixed. We show that the locus of the moving control point that yields a zero curvature point on the curve is a developable surface, the regression curve of which is the locus that guarantees a cusp on the curve ACM, Inc.
  • So far, we have thought of an elliptic curve as defined by its equation. However, a specific equation is not unique for determining a locus of points. Simple substitutions such as x' = 2x obviously lead to different equations with the same locus of points that satisfy the equation. Substitutions like this amount to a change of coordinate system. Charles Daney
  • This curve is called the locus of the equation. The locus of an equation is a curve containing those points, and only those points, whose coordinates satisfy the equation. tpub.com

geometrický útvar (dříve geometrické místo bodů)


Definition from own experience or research:
Množina všech bodů dané vlastnosti je geometrický útvar, pro který platí:
každý jeho bod má tuto vlastnost
žádný jiný bod tuto vlastnost nemá
Dříve se používal název "geometrické místo bodů"geometrické místo bodů je množina bodů s určitou vlastností
