# CTAN update: tkz-elements

Date: March 27, 2024 7:19:27 PM CET

Alain Matthes submitted an update to the
tkz-elements
package.
Version: 2.20c
License: lppl1.3
Summary description: A Lua library for drawing Euclidean geometry with TikZ or tkz-euclide
Announcement text:

Package: Added class matrix; methods are mainly of order 2, sometimes of order 3. Added function solve_quadratic. This function can be used to solve second-degree equations with real or complex numbers. Added method print for the class point. Example z.A : print () Correction of the macro tkzDN. I deleted a spurious space Modification of vector class attributes. Attributes h and t become head and tail. The mtx attribute is introduced for point and vector. z.A.mtx represents the column matrix whose coefficients are the point's coordinates. Same for vectors. Documentation: Rewriting of all texts Correction of example: pentagon Documentation about matrices

The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/tkz-elements The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/tkz/tkz-elements/

## tkz-elements – A Lua library for drawing Euclidean geometry with TikZ or tkz-euclide

This package provides a library written in Lua, allowing to make all the necessary calculations to define the objects of a Euclidean geometry figure. You need to compile with LuaLaTeX. The definitions and calculations are only done with Lua.

The main possibility of programmation proposed is oriented “object programming” with object classes like point, line, triangle, circle and ellipse. For the moment, once the calculations are done, it is tkz-euclide or TikZ which allows the drawings.
