Category: Spiric sections

In geometry, a hippopede (from Ancient Greek ἱπποπέδη (hippopédē) 'horse fetter') is a plane curve determined by an equation of the form where it is assumed that c > 0 and c > d since the remaining ca
Lemniscate of Bernoulli
In geometry, the lemniscate of Bernoulli is a plane curve defined from two given points F1 and F2, known as foci, at distance 2c from each other as the locus of points P so that PF1·PF2 = c2. The curv
Spiric section
In geometry, a spiric section, sometimes called a spiric of Perseus, is a quartic plane curve defined by equations of the form Equivalently, spiric sections can be defined as bicircular quartic curves
Cassini oval
In geometry, a Cassini oval is a quartic plane curve defined as the locus of points in the plane such that the product of the distances to two fixed points (foci) is constant. This may be contrasted w
