1) This happens because the point N is the common nucleus for all the proper conics of pencil (5) and as [L.
The case is illustrated by a (self-dual) pencil of conics endowed with two singular conics of which one represents a double real line and the other is a real line pair.
One may also use this article as a different technique for reduction of conic sections to the standard forms.
It is well known that the center of this conic is at the origin.
The differentiation between the disciplines was, nonetheless, following its course; geometry of projections had received a strong jolt at the hands of mathematicians like al-Quhi and Ibn Sahl; geometrical transformations had become an object of reflection and application for the mathematicians; a chapter on geometrical constructions with the help of the conics had taken shape and developed.
In his Geometrie (1637) Descartes, although objecting to the "barbarous" notation of Arabic algebraists, followed Viete (who, surprisingly, is omitted from this History's biobibliographical index) and extended his analytic programme, drawing on Apollonius's Conics, as did Pierre de Fermat in his roughly contemporary work on plane and solid loci (726-30).
The results presented in this paper are an investigation of a trigonometry based on the parabolic conic and are an alternative to those based on the circle and hyperbola conics.

After a review of functions, coverage progresses from limit of a function through derivatives and applications, integrals and applications, techniques of integration, first-order differential equations, sequences and series, and conics and polar coordinates.
