    In this article we use the univariate Hermite interpolation to construct the surfaces on circular domains. The surfaces match given circles. We study the parabolical points of these surfaces. Some examples and graphs are given. These surfaces can be used in civil engineering or in Computer Aided...

    We investigate finite affine planes p of even order possessing a parabolic oval O (|O n l[sub 8]| = 1) and a collineation group G which leaves O invariant and acts 2-transitively on its affine points. The main attention is devoted to translation planes. The odd order case has already been...
