```There's something missing in the first section of the notebook:  The
cell

Show[Graphics[
{LightBlue, (curve ParametricDraw[
Evaluate[ellipse[\[Pi]/4, t]], {t, 0, 2\[Pi]}]) /.
Line -> Polygon, Black, curve}],

AspectRatio -> Automatic, PlotRange -> {{-10, 10}, {-10, 10}},
Background -> Linen,
{}];

refers to a symbol "curve" that has not been defined.
