The set of poles of a two-sheeted hyperboloid. (English) Zbl 1052.53002

The paper provides the first reliable visualizations of the process, where the set of poles of a symmetric two-sheeted hyperboloid of revolution breaks into two sets, if symmetry is broken by contraction perpendicular to the original axis of symmetry.
