### Wikipedia

elliptic

In mathematics, an ellipse is a plane curve surrounding two focal points, such that for all points on the curve, the sum of the two distances to the focal points is a constant. It generalizes a circle, which is the special type of ellipse in which the two focal points are the same. The elongation of an ellipse is measured by its eccentricity e {\displaystyle e} , a number ranging from e = 0 {\displaystyle e=0} (the limiting case of a circle) to e = 1 {\displaystyle e=1} (the limiting case of infinite elongation, no longer an ellipse but a parabola). An ellipse has a simple algebraic solution for its area, but only approximations for its perimeter (also known as circumference), for which integration is required to obtain an exact solution. Analytically, the equation of a standard ellipse centered at the origin with width 2 a {\displaystyle 2a} and height 2 b {\displaystyle 2b} is:
