The Pulfrich Effect: Nickalls' Theorem (2000)

Nickalls, R. W. D. A conic theorem generalised: directed angles and applications. The Mathematical Gazette, 2000, 84, pp. 232 - 241.

Newton 1726, p. 50:  Construction showing inverse decline of centripetal force, given an elliptical orbit.

This paper presents a new proof of Nickalls' Theorem, generalizing it to directed angles and to all possible arrangements of the line and conic.
