  • If the asymptotes be perpendicular, or, in other words, the principal axes be equal, the curve is called the rectangular hyperbola.
  • We may observe that the asymptotes intersect this circle in the same points as the directrices.
  • If the tangent at P meets the asymptotes in R, R', then CR.CR' = CS 2.
