Initial domain and simplification procedures

A specific procedure Bound_Distance for finding an initial estimate of the search domain has been implemented in the ALIAS-Maple package ( see the ALIAS-Maple manual): this procedure may provide an initial guess for the solution ranges or improve a given guess.

Note also that the choice of the right coordinate system (for example its origin) and which points should be defined as virtual points may have a large influence on the computation time (see an example in [10]).
