In mathematics, what is the name (type) for a curve given by velocity and time dilation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Specifically, I want to find a name for the curve [itex]y=1/(1-x^2)^{1/2}[/itex]

This curve is derived from the equation of a unit circle [itex](x-a)^2+(y-b)^2=r^2[/itex]

where [itex]y=(1-x^2)^{1/2}[/itex]
