Bowditch Curve

The Bowditch curve is the locus of the equations shown below. In the case that n=1 and d=0, the equations for the Bowditch curve represent a line. When n=1 and d=π/2, the equations represent an ellipse; when a=b, the ellipse becomes a circle. In the case that n=2 and d=π/2, the equations represent a section of a parabola. Expressions |
