Locus (from Latin locus ‘’) is a set of points satisfying a certain condition and such that no point outside the set satisfies this condition.
For example, in the plane the locus of such point that is at a fixed distance from a fixed point is the circle with centre and radius ; the locus of such point which is equidistant from both ends of a line segment is the perpendicular bisector of this line segment.
In general, the loci in the plane are geometric curves; thus one may speak of locus curves.
