1. lemniscate

A lemniscate is a figure-eight or infinity shaped curve in a plane, originally studied by Jacob Bernoulli in 1694. Its name is derived from the Latin word "lemniscus," which means "ribbon." It is a type of mathematical curve often used in complex analysis and number theory, and is the locus of points the product of whose distances from two given foci is a certain constant. Its standard form is (x² + y²)² = a²(x² - y²), where a is the distance from the origin to the point of intersection of the curve.
