## Circle inscribed between smooth curves

Maple

Circles inscribed between curves can be specified by a system of equations relative to the coordinates of the center of the circle and the coordinates of the tangent points. Such a system can have 5 or 6 equations and 6 variables, which are mentioned above.
In the case of 5 equations, we can immediately obtain an infinite set of solutions by selecting the ones we need from it.
(See the attached text for more details.)
The 1st equation is responsible for the belonging of the point of tangency to one of the curves.
The 2nd equation is responsible for the belonging of the point of tangency to another curve.
In the 3rd equation, the points of tangency on the curves belong to the inscribed circle.
In the 4th and 5th equations, the condition is satisfied that the tangents to the curves are perpendicular to the radii of the circle at the points of contact.
The 6th equation serves either to find a specific inscribed circle or to find an infinite set of solutions. It is selected based on the type of curves and their mutual arrangement.

In this example, we search for a subset of the solution set using the Draghilev method by solving the first five equations of the system: we inscribe circles in two "angles" formed by the intersection of the exponent and the ellipse.
