Abstract

In this paper, we give a generalization of the well-known Minkowski distance family in the $n$-dimensional Cartesian coordinate space. Then we consider three special cases of this family, which are also generalizations of the taxicab, Euclidean, and maximum metrics, respectively, and we determine some circle properties of them in the real plane. While we determine some properties of circles of these generalized distances, we discover a new definition of ellipses, and then we also determine a similar definition of hyperbolas, which will be new members among different metrical definitions of central conics in the Euclidean plane.
