(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

Now, for [alpha] = -1/4, we get 8/5L + 1 [approximately equal to] 1.6102078108, where L is the Lemniscate constant; that is, L = (1/2 [square root of 2[pi]])[GAMMA][(1/4).sup.2].

Since a solution of the Cauchy problem x(0) = 0, x'(0) = [gamma] is known analytically, that is, x(t; [gamma]) = [square root of ([gamma])] sl([square root of ([gamma])t), where sl t is the lemniscate sine function (computable by Mathematica) both curves [Z.sub.1](1) and [Z.sub.2](1) can be constructed and visualized as [Z.sub.1](1) = {([[gamma].sub.1], [[gamma].sub.2]) [member of] (0, 27.514) x (0, 27.514), [[gamma].sub.1] > [[gamma].sub.2] : the difference x(t, [[gamma].sub.1]) -x(t, [[gamma].sub.1]) has the first zero at t = 1}.
