 Aug6 asked What is this semicircle-like shape called? Aug2 accepted Area of the polygon formed by cutting a cube with a plane Aug2 comment Area of the polygon formed by cutting a cube with a plane Great, thank you! Aug2 comment Area of the polygon formed by cutting a cube with a plane Terrific explanation! Quick question: is there an easy way to deal with the case for which $m_i=0$ occurs? Or should I just compute the limit using l'hopital's rule? Aug2 comment Area of the polygon formed by cutting a cube with a plane @CalvinLin I will certainly try that, thanks! I do wonder whether that easily generalizes to polygons with a different number of vertices (due to a different cut of the box) Aug2 comment Area of the polygon formed by cutting a cube with a plane @StephenNand-Lal Good point, completely forgot the word for it. Yes I do, edited it.

Interesting, I wasn't expecting that! May8 asked Integration and differentiation of an approximation to a function - order of approximation May8 accepted Scaling a function with two 'asymptotes' of which one is non-constant Mar13 comment Scaling a function with two 'asymptotes' of which one is non-constant The slope would be fixed if that's what you mean. Essentially it will be the same as the graph in my question but with all curves having (all the same) slope $dy/dx\neq0$ at $x=0$ instead of the current case with $dy/dx=0$ at $x=0$ Mar13 comment Scaling a function with two 'asymptotes' of which one is non-constant Just a quick follow-up, if the lefthand asymptote is also a linear function instead of a constant, could I still apply a similar transformation?! Mar13 revised Scaling a function with two 'asymptotes' of which one is non-constant changed small error in calculation of t Mar13 suggested approved edit on Scaling a function with two 'asymptotes' of which one is non-constant Mar12 comment Scaling a function with two 'asymptotes' of which one is non-constant I was indeed looking for a linear transformation. Sorry, forgot to mention that. Thanks for the answer! - Just for future reference: the choice of $t$ to map everything on the red curve in my case would be $t=(1-y_{as})/(y_0-y_{as})$ where $y_{as}$ is the value of the horizontal asymptote of the given function Mar12 asked Scaling a function with two 'asymptotes' of which one is non-constant
