 Cubic Curves

Page: 1 | 2 | View All The curve was studied by Fermat, Guido Grandi in 1701, and by Maria Agnesi in 1748. The cissoid of Diocles is an unbounded plane curve with a single cusp, which is symmetric about the line of tangency of the cusp, and whose pair of sy... The semicubical parabola is defined to be the evolute of a parabola. It was first described by the German painter and mathematician Albrecht D�rer (1471�1528) which he called Ein muschellini. The Trisectrix of Maclaurin is the pedal of the parabola with respect to a point that is the focus of the parabola reflected over the parabola's direc... Tschirnhausen's cubic is the locus of the equations shown below. The Right strophoid is the strophoid of a line with the fixed point located at the foot of the perpendicular from the pole to the line. The Oblique strophoid is the strophoid of a line with the fixed point located on the line but not at the foot of the perpendicular from the pole to th...
