# Computer-assisted proofs of "Kariya's theorem" with computer algebra

We demonstrate computer-assisted proofs of "Kariya's theorem," a theorem in elementary geometry, with computer algebra. In the proof of geometry theorem with computer algebra, vertices of geometric figures that are subjects for the proof are expressed as variables. The variables are classified into two classes: arbitrarily given points and the points defined from the former points by constraints. We show proofs of Kariya's theorem with two formulations according to two ways for giving the arbitrary points: one is called "vertex formulation," and the other is called "incenter formulation," with two methods: one is Gröbner basis computation, and the other is Wu's method. Furthermore, we show computer-assisted proofs of the property that the point so-called "Kariya point" is located on the hyperbola so-called "Feuerbach's hyperbola", with two formulations and two methods.
