A simple Conic with two standard parallels (where the cone cuts the surface at two lines of true local scale) can also be used to fit the maps as an alternative to the Conic with one standard parallel.

In particular, according to Lemma 1 in [39], if c > 0 and d [not equal to] 0, this conic is an elliptic hyperbolic limit cycle of system (2), attracting if [lambda] > 0 and a repelling if [lambda] < 0.
A general W [member of] W contains no C [member of] [M'.sub.d,g] such that either there is a conic D [subset] [P.sup.5] with deg(D [intersection] C) [greater than or equal to] 12 or there is a line L [subset] [P.sup.5] with deg(L [intersection] C) [greater than or equal to] 6.
Two conic mappings (secant or tangent) are equivalent on a chosen domain if, and only if, they have the same value of the parameter n.
Since the satellite orbit is generally oblique to the equator, a transformation at the equator is needed in order to use the static conformal conic projection formula expediently (Yang, Snyder, and Tobler 1999).
Xya'al Kobe' have spent eight years in negotiation with government agencies, alongside CONIC. But they have suffered for their refusal to leave, seeing a community leader arrested for living illegally in a protected area and having to confront the same military that drove their parents from their land.
The derivation of the formula which relates the angular velocity [omega], the angles [alpha] and [phi], as well as the unwinding velocity V and the effective radius of the conic package at the lift-off point c, is more involved as in the case of cylindrical package, since one cannot use a simple geometrical argument in the present case.
Knowledge about conic sections is one of the key content topics of mathematics curriculum in secondary schools.
Now as you move the point B, the movement of the circle is sampled along a conic locus.
From (2) it follows that E = 0 and the eccentricity of the conic section is found to be (see Appendix 9)
