The normal segment for a given line is defined to be the line segment drawn from the origin perpendicular to the line. This segment joins the origin with ... more

The Cissoid of Diocles is a cubic plane curve member of the conchoid of de Sluze family of curves and in form it resembles a tractrix.( Tractix is the ... more

A tacnode (also called a point of osculation or double cusp) is a kind of singular point of a curve. It is defined as a point where two (or more) ... more

In mathematics, parametric equations of a curve express the coordinates of the points of the curve as functions of a variable, called a parameter. A ... more

Log-polar coordinates in the plane consist of a pair of real numbers (ρ,θ), where ρ is the logarithm of the distance between a given point and the origin ... more

In physics and geometry, a catenary is the curve that an idealized hanging chain or cable assumes under its own weight when supported only at its ends. The ... more

A cycloid is the curve traced by a point on the rim of a circular wheel as the wheel rolls along a straight line without slippage. It is an example of a ... more

In mathematics, a crunode (archaic) or node is a point where a curve intersects itself so that both branches of the curve have distinct tangent lines at ... more

A cardioid is a plane curve traced by a point on the perimeter of a circle that is rolling around a fixed circle of the same radius. It is therefore a type ... more
