Parabolas infiltrating the Ford circles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We define and study a new family of parabolas in connection with Ford circles and discover some interesting properties that they have. Using these properties, we provide an application of such a family. This application, which establishes an asymptotic estimate for the L2 norm of a set of parabolas, proves useful in connection with recent work done by Kunik.
