Movies for Multivariable Calculus:

Family of Hyperboloids

This movie shows the family of surfaces obtained from x2 + y2 - z2 = k as k varies from negative to positive values. For negative values, the surface is an hyperboloid of two sheets, for positive values, an hyperboloid of one sheet. A value of zero produces a double cone, the critical surface that separates the other two forms.
