En la Figura 3 se representan cuatro elipses [kappa]-deformadas, para cada una se eligio a = 3, 6 = 2 y por tanto c = [raiz cuadrada de 5], las elipses a graficar corresponden a los valores [kappa] = 0,5, [kappa] = 0,4, [kappa] = 0,3 y [kappa] = 0,1; el valor de [kappa] = 0,4 se elige ya que es el termino que satisface la desigualdad (15).
