幾何上,卡西尼卵形線(hippopede ,嚟自古希臘文ἱπποπέδη,意思係「horse fetter」)係一條平面曲線,由呢個方程定義

(x^2+y^2)^2=cx^2+dy^2,

where it is assumed that c>0 and c>d since the remaining cases either reduce to a single point or can be put into the given form with a rotation. Hippopedes are bicircular rational algebraic curves of degree 4 and symmetric with respect to both the x and y axes. When d>0 the curve has an oval form and is often known as an oval of Booth, and when d<0 the curve resembles a sideways figure eight, or lemniscate, and is often known as a lemniscate of Booth, after James Booth (1810–1878) who studied them. Hippopedes were also investigated by Proclus (for whom they are sometimes called Hippopedes of Proclus) and Eudoxus. For d = −c, the hippopede corresponds to the lemniscate of Bernoulli.

作為環面嘅截面[編輯]

Hippopedes with a = 1, b = 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0.
Hippopedes with b = 1, a = 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0.

Hippopedes can be defined as the curve formed by the intersection of a torus and a plane, where the plane is parallel to the axis of the torus and tangent to it on the interior circle. Thus it is a spiric section which in turn is a type of toric section.

If a circle with radius a is rotated about an axis at distance b from its center, then the equation of the resulting hippopede in polar coordinates


r^2 = 4 b (a- b \sin^{2} \theta)\,

or in Cartesian coordinates

(x^2+y^2)^2+4b(b-a)(x^2+y^2)=4b^2x^2.

Note that when a>b the torus intersects itself, so it does not resemble the usual picture of a torus.
