Fig.4 Comparison between the egg shaped curve
of (pink colored curve)
and the shape of an actual egg
The curve in the case that and
(in general, the case of ) gives the closest shape to an actual egg.
The comparison between the curve in this case and the shape of an actual egg is shown in Fig.4.
The each curve a, b, c and d shown in Fig.3 is corresponding to the each range of
discribed in the following equations;
where n is an integer.
As Eq.(2) is a little complicated to recognize the each range, we will show the typical case of n=0 in Eq.(2) as the followings;
However, as an area of a, b, c or d as shown in Fig.3 is duplicated as seen in the above equation while each area intersects complicatedly,
so the distinction of the each area is not understood well yet.
Therefore, when only the middle part of the range of
in the above equation is picked out so as not to be duplicated,
we can show a simple description in respect to the range of as follows.
[Reference] Relation between and indicating the curves shown in Fig.3
If we take the square of the both sides of the each equation in Eq.(1),
If we apply the sinusoidal formula and
Substituting Eq.(3) into the above equation, we obtain
If we arrange the above equation more clearly,
If we take the square of the both sides of the above equation,
Applying the sinusoidal fomula
into the above equation, we obtain that
By substituting Eq.(1) in the above equation, Eq.(1) is led to
If we arrange the above equation more clearly, we obtain the 5th order equation as the following;
The order number of such the obtained equation is more than that of Yamamoto's egg equation
) by 'a unit'.
2. Egg shaped curve as a section made by cutting a Pseudo-sphere by means of inclined plane
(Written by Mr. ITOU)
It is well known that a section made by cutting a cone by means of inclined plane does not reveal an egg shaped curve but an ellipse.
On the other hand, a section made by cutting a pseudo-sphere reveals an egg shaped curve as shown in Fig.5.
