Further Description and Explanation
Consider a torus, , as a surface of revolution, generated by a circle with radius , and with center at distance from the axis. is the major radius of , and is the minor radius. Intersecting the torus with a plane parallel to its axis gives a plane curve, called a "spiric section of Perseus." In the special case where this intersecting plane is at distance from the axis, so it is also a tangent plane, the curve is called a "hippopede of Proclus."
