Lemniscate Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
In algebraic geometry, a lemniscate may refer to any of several figure-eight or 8-shaped curves. The word comes from the Latin "lemniscatus" meaning "decorated with ribbons", which in turn may come from the ancient Greek island of Lemnos where ribbons were worn as decorations, or alternatively may refer to the wool from which the ribbons were made.
