- The circle and
**ellipse**models are deliberately simplified to avoid distracting details which are not relevant to the circle–ellipse problem. - How to find the vertices and semi-axes of the
**ellipse**is described in ellipse. - For an
**ellipse**, two diameters are said to be conjugate if and only if the tangent line to the ellipse at an endpoint of one diameter is parallel to the other diameter. - For an
**ellipse**, the standard terminology is different. - The major and minor axes of an
**ellipse**are perpendicular to each other and to the tangent lines to the ellipse at the points where the axes intersect the ellipse.

- The Rytz’s axis construction is a basic method of descriptive geometry to find the axes, the semi-major axis and semi-minor axis and the vertices of an
**ellipse**, starting from two conjugated half-diameters. - Every triangle has an inscribed
**ellipse**, called its Steiner inellipse, that is internally tangent to the triangle at the midpoints of all its sides. - The 1-
**ellipse**is the circle, and the 2-ellipse is the classic ellipse. Both are algebraic curves of degree 2. - The director circle of an
**ellipse**circumscribes the minimum bounding box of the ellipse. - The semi-minor axis of an
**ellipse**runs from the center of the ellipse (a point halfway between and on the line running between the foci) to the edge of the ellipse.

- ... A) For an equilateral triangle the Steiner
**ellipse**is the circumcircle, which is the only ellipse, that fulfills the preconditions. - The eccentricity of an
**ellipse**can be seen as a measure of how far the ellipse deviates from being circular. - A prolate ellipsoidal dome is derived by rotating an
**ellipse**around the long axis of the ellipse; an oblate ellipsoidal dome is derived by rotating an ellipse around the short axis of the ellipse. - Every triangle has a unique Steiner inellipse which is interior to the triangle and tangent at the midpoints of the sides.
- For the generation of points of the
**ellipse**[...] one uses the pencils at the vertices [...]. Let [...] be an upper co-vertex of the ellipse and [...].

- "Given":
**Ellipse**with vertices [...] and foci [...] and a right circular cone with apex [...] containing the ellipse (see diagram). - If
**ellipse**E collapses to a line segment [...] , one gets a slight variation of the gardener's method drawing an ellipse with foci [...].
