2D Coordinate Systems: Elliptic


The Elliptic coordinate system is a two-dimensional orthogonal coordinate system in which the coordinate lines are confocal ellipses and hyperbolae (see Hyperbola).
Elliptic coordinates form the basis for several sets of three-dimensional orthogonal coordinates (see Elliptic cylindrical, Prolate spheroidal, Oblate spheroidal).
