12.4.6  Find the isobarycenter of a set of points in space: isobarycenter

See section 11.6.10 for isobarycenters of objects in the plane.

The isobarycenter command takes a list (or sequence) of points and returns and draws the isobarycenter, which is the barycenter when all the points are equally weighted.
Input:

IB := isobarycenter(point(1,4,0),point(1,-2,0))

then:

coordinates(IB)

Output:

[1,1,0]
