On the Intersection Equation of a Hyperboloid and a Plane
Author(s) Peter Paul Klein
ABSTRACT

In this note, the ideas employed in [1] to treat the problem of an ellipsoid intersected by a plane are applied to the analogous problem of a hyperboloid being intersected by a plane. The curves of intersection resulting in this case are not only ellipses but rather all types of conics: ellipses, hyperbolas and parabolas. In text books of mathematics usually only cases are treated, where the planes of intersection are parallel to the coordinate planes. Here the general case is illustrated with intersecting planes which are not necessarily parallel to the coordinate planes.
