Hyperbolas are centered on a point which is considered the center of the hyperbola. The point on each branch closest to the center is known as the branch's vertex. The vertices are located from a fixed distance from the center. The transverse axis goes through the center from one vertex to the other. Inside each branch are the foci and located at a fixed distance from the center.
