Serie XXVIII, Nr 1

Cubic ellipse on an elliptical cylinder.


Mathematical description
This model represents a cubic ellipse with a real infinitely far point and a real asymptote, lying on an elliptic cylinder. An elliptic cylinder is a cylinder with elliptical cross section. The parametric equations for the laterals sides of an elliptic cylinder of height h, semimajor axis a, and semiminor axis b are:

                 x = a cos(θ)
                 y = b sin (θ)
                 z = z.
