The equation of the curve is

[math]\, r = \frac{p}{1-\epsilon\cdot cos(\phi+\rho)};[/math]


The JavaScript code to produce this picture

<jsxgraph board="brd" width="600" height="500">
var brd = JXG.JSXGraph.initBoard('jxgbox',{axis:true,originX:300,originY:250,unitX:25,unitY:25});
var p = brd.createElement('slider',[[2,8],[6,8],[0,3,6]]); brd.createElement('text',[1,8,'p:']);

var len = brd.createElement('slider',[[2,6],[6,6],[0,3,6]]); brd.createElement('text',[1,6,'len:']);
var rho = brd.createElement('slider', [[2,5],[6,5],[0,0,2*Math.PI]]); brd.createElement('text',[1,5,'&rho;:']);
var f = brd.createElement('curve', 
   [function(phi) { return p.Value()/(1-eps.Value()*Math.cos(phi+rho.Value())); }, [1,0], 0,function(){return len.Value()*Math.PI}],
