A conic section is a plane curve which can be specified in terms of:
- a given straight line $D$ known as the directrix
- a given point $F$ known as a focus
- a given constant $\epsilon$ known as the eccentricity.
- $(1): \quad q = \epsilon \, p$
Then $K$ is a conic section.
Equation $(1)$ is known as the focus-directrix property of $K$.
