Mathematical description
An one sheeted hyperboloid is a surface of revolution obtained by rotating a hyperbola about the
perpendicular bisector of the line between its foci.
This model is from geometrical optics.
Parallel rays of light are reflected in the one sheeted hyperboloid, whose equation is:
x^{2} y^{2} z^{2} --- + --- — --- = 1 5^{2} 2^{2} 1^{2}The models show the surfaces S which are enveloped by all these reflected rays. This surface are described by the following:
S = { (x,y,z) | ∃v | 20y^{2}=(v-5/2)^{3}(3v+5/2+x^{2}/25) | } |
-5z^{2}=(v+5/2)^{3}(3v-5/2+x^{2}/25) |
