Hyperbolic

Hyperbolic refers to something related to or in shape of hyperbola (a type of curve), or to something employing the literary device of hyperbole (overstatement or plausible exaggeration).

The following topics are based on the hyperbola etymology:

  • Hyperbolic equilibrium point
  • Hyperbolic function
  • Hyperbolic geometry
  • Hyperbolic group
  • Hyperbolic growth
  • Hyperbolic paraboloid (not to be confused with hyperboloid)
  • Hyperbolic manifold
  • Hyperbolic space
  • Hyperboloid structure
  • Hyperbolic trajectory
