Algebraic surfaces of the 2nd degree Quadric surfaces

Algebraic surface of the 2nd order has class equal to 2 - it is a surface of the 2nd degree and it is given by a 2nd degree algebraic equation \( F^2(x,y,z)=0\) . Such surfaces are called the quadrics. (Wikipedia: Quadrics)

There are 5 types of quadrics:

ELLIPSOIDS

HYPERBOLOIDS

PARABOLOIDS

CONES

CYLINDERS
