### Parametrisation of the surface a torus

For a calculus question I need to parameterise the surface of the torus generated by rotating the circle given by $(x-b)^2+z^2=a^2$ around the $z$-axis (with $0<a<b$). I've had a go at this, ...

### Rotation of conics sections using linear algebra

When given an equation of the form $$Ax^2+Bxy+Cy^2 + Dx + Ey + F$$ where $B \not= 0$ and it is not a degenerate conic, then you can use $\Delta = B^2 -4AC$ to see what type of conic it is, and then (...
