Abstract: In this paper, we consider some practical applications of the symbolic Hamburger-Noether expressions for plane curves, which are introduced as a symbolic version of the so-called Hamburger-Noether expansions. More precisely, we give and develop in symbolic terms algorithms to compute the resolution tree of a plane curve (and the adjunction divisor, in particular), rational parametrizations for the branches of such a curve, special adjoints with assigned conditions (connected with different problems, like the so-called Brill-Noether algorithm), and the Weierstrass semigroup at $P$ together with functions for each value in this semigroup, provided $P$ is a rational branch of a singular plane model for the curve. Some other computational problems related to algebraic curves over perfect fields can be treated symbolically by means of such expressions, but we deal just with those connected with the effective construction and decoding of algebraic geometry codes.
