Asymptotes of Plane Curves - Revisited
In this paper we present a review of the basic ideas and results concerning asymptotic lines of plane curves. We discuss their different definitions, namely that of a limiting position of tangent
Flash Geometry of Algebraic Curves
In this paper, we develop the theory of flashes of an algebraic curve. We show that the theory is birationally invariant in a sense which we will make more precise below. We also show how the theory
Basic Concept on Asymptotes in Calculus
Abstract In analytical geometry an asymptote of a curve is a line such that the distance between the curve and the line approaches zero as one or both of the x or y coordinates tend to infinity. Some
