Is it possible to transform an ellipse(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1 ("a" minor or major semiaxis)

Into a rectangle?

If so, how can I do it? I am not very familiar so please explain all the details. I know the transformation from a circle to an airfoil, but not this one.
