Ovals and Egg Curves

This site (Ovals and Egg Curves) displays some interesting equations for egg curves. One such equation modifies the equation of an ellipse slightly by multiplying the “y²” term by a suitable function t(x), so that y becomes larger on the left side of the y-axis and smaller on the right side. For example, starting with …
