The function x*sqrt(4*R^2 - x^2) gives the area of the recangle inscribed in the circle with radius R, for x = |BC|. The solution is obtained for x = sqrt(2)*R, and is the inscribed square. A variant of a problem of Kepler (see KeplerProblem.html ). Proposed by Roni Levy in the third Calgeo meeting.
