The projection seems to be an equidistant Conic with central meridian through Beijing and it includes global longitudes apparently measured in degrees east of the Azores.
For both sub- and main reflectors, the errors were calculated from the distances between O and the reflector points shared by adjacent generating conics ([S.sub.n-1] and [S.sub.n] for subreflectors, [M.sub.n-1] and [M.sub.n] for main reflectors), with the reference being a surface shaped with N = [10.sup.5], a number large enough to ensure the proper convergence of the reference solution [7].
Let U be the set of all lines R [subset] M such that deg(R [intersection] C) [greater than or equal to] 7 and let V be the set of all planes spanned by conics D such that deg(D [intersection] C) [greater than or equal to] 12.

This model will also allow students to explore a range of conics with eccentricities ranging between 0.125 and 8.
As a second example, students are asked to open conic.html [16].
It could only do some partial unifications, such as the geometry of conics and the theory of equations.

Professor Saniga's paper "Conics, (q+1)-Arcs, Pencil Concept of Time and Psychopathology," informs us that it is demonstrated in the (projective plane over) Galois fields GF (q) with q = 2" and n [greater than or equal to] 3 (n being a positive integer) we can define, in addition to the temporal dimensions generated by pencils of conics, also time coordinates represented by aggregates of (q+1)-arcs that are not conics.
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).
A trigonometry exists for two of the three conics. It is my purpose in this paper to investigate a trigonometry for the third conic, the parabola.
