Abstract : Ellipses have a lot of interesting geometric properties.
It is quite natural to ask whether such properties of ellipses and some related ones characterize ellipses.
In this paper, we study some chord properties and area properties of ellipses.
As a result, using curvature and support function of a strictly convex curve,
we establish four characterization theorems of ellipses and hyperbolas centered at the origin.
Keywords : chord, area, ellipse, hyperbola, curvature function, support function, strictly convex curve
