(Baker No. 76) Two quadratic surfaces intersecting in a twisted cubic The two quadratic surfaces are a parabolic cylinder and a hyperbolic paraboloid. This model was constructed by R. P.Baker. In BakerÕs catalog, this is called the Cubical Parabola, with the comment: Ôat least two quadrics of the pencil are shown.Õ The pencil in question is the pencil (or one-parameter family) of quadratic surfaces obtained by taking linear combinations of the two shown. All the surfaces in the pencil contain the same twisted cubic. |
