Trident Curve

All Updates

In mathematics, a **trident curve** (also **trident of Newton** or **parabola of Descartes**) is any member of the family of curves that have the formula:

Trident curves are cubic plane curves with an ordinary double point in the real projective plane at*x* = 0, *y* = 1, *z* = 0; if we substitute *x* = *x*/*z* and *y* = 1/*z* into the equation of the trident curve, we get

which has an ordinary double point at the origin. Trident curves are therefore rational plane algebraic curves of genus zero.
