Conic sections
In mathematics, a conic section is a curve obtained as the intersection of the surface of a cone with a plane
foci
In geometry, focuses or foci , singular focus, are special points with reference to which any of a variety of curves is constructed
hyperbola
In mathematics, a hyperbola is a type of smooth curve lying in a plane, defined by its geometric properties or by equations for which it is the solution set
equidistant
