This category contains results about Polars of Points.
Definitions specific to this category can be found in Definitions/Polars of Points.

Let $\KK$ be a conic section embedded in a Euclidean plane.

Let $P$ be an arbitrary point in that plane.

Let a secant line pass through $P$ and intersect $\KK$ at $L$ and $M$.

The polar of $P$ with respect to $\KK$ is the straight line upon which the tangents to $\KK$ intersect.
