transformation to lines and circles

I'd like to take a circle and apply a transformation to it (such as a reflection or a translation). For instance, if T1 is translation 1 unit right and c1 = circle((0,0),1), I'd like to be able to plot T1(c1) (the image of c1 under T1, which is the circle with new center (1,0)). How can I do this?

Currently this is only implemented for 3d graphics.

See this discussion and the example there: sage-support: 2D translate, rotate.

So just add a third coordinate to your circle...

Note that Sage trac ticket #16484 (Transformations for 2D plots) is precisely about implementing what you are asking, but there has been no work on this so far.

Thanks. While we're on the topic of geometric transformations, is there a way to do inversion in a given circle?
