the set of points in a plane whose distances to two fixed points in the plane have a constant difference; a curve consisting of two distinct and similar branches, formed by the intersection of a plane with a right circular cone when the plane makes a greater angle with the base than does the generator of the cone. Equation:x 2/a 2 − y 2/b 2 = ±1.
To create global human policy based on emotion and hyperbola has always been the stuff of politicians.
These keywords overlay a reflection hyperbola on the image and a cross noting where the object would be in distance-time space.
British Dictionary definitions for hyperbola
noun (pl) -las, -le (-ˌliː)
a conic section formed by a plane that cuts both bases of a cone; it consists of two branches asymptotic to two intersecting fixed lines and has two foci. Standard equation: x²/a² – y²/b² = 1 where 2a is the distance between the two intersections with the x-axis and b = a√(e² – 1), where e is the eccentricity
C17: from Greek huperbolē, literally: excess, extravagance, from hyper- + ballein to throw
Pluralhyperbolas or hyperbolae (hī-pûr'bə-lē) A plane curve having two separate parts or branches, formed when two cones that point toward one another are intersected by a plane that is parallel to the axes of the cones.
