3D Coordinate Systems: Paraboloidal 2

Paraboloidal 2

The Paraboloidal 2 coordinates are a three-dimensional orthogonal coordinate system (λ,μ,ν) that generalizes the two-dimensional parabolic coordinate system.
Similar to the related ellipsoidal coordinates, the Paraboloidal 2 coordinate system has orthogonal quadratic coordinate surfaces that are not produced by rotating or projecting any two-dimensional orthogonal coordinate system.
Se also Paraboloidal coordinate system.
