(Mathematics) a closed plane curve consisting of two symmetrical loops meeting at a node. Equation: (x2 + y2)2 = a2(x2y2), where a is the greatest distance from the curve to the origin. The symbol for infinity (∞) is an example

He also announced that the theory applies to a wider class of transcendental functions including the lemniscatic arc length.
In section 2 we define the lemniscate, discuss its arc length and recast the lemniscatic functions to fit the later work.
The lemniscatic sine sl(x) is the odd function resulting from extending [arcsl.
During the strategic planning at RU, all those involved experienced how, at all stages in the process, new questions or obstacles arose which, in a lemniscatic, repetitive, flowing movement, necessitated returning and finding new facts or new common understandings (Figure 5) (Bos, 2005).
The lemniscatic development method as a heuristic tool (Figure 5) can help engage staff members in the development process, which is important for creating awareness of the strategic planning and for increasing its legitimacy in the organization.
j] coincide with the origin, a phenomenon that, by the maximum principle, can be generalized to arbitrary lemniscatic regions.
He then considers the work of Lagrange, Galois and Kronecker in concert, the process of computing Galois groups, solvable permutation groups, and the lemniscate, including the lemniscatic function, complex multiplication and Abel's theorem.
