Exploding the Ellipse

Arnold Good 

March 1999, Volume 92, Issue 3, Page 186

Abstract:
Readers are advised to proceed with caution. Those with a weak heart may wish to consult a physician first. What we are about to do is explode an ellipse. This risky business is not often undertaken by the professional mathematician, whose polytechnic endeavors are usually limited to encounters with administrators.
