1) This document explains why and how a second order surface can be associated to the dispersion relation of light propagating in vacuum.

2) It is a relooked version of the text which has been published on on the 11th of July 2021.

3) It is in some way the model for what I have sometimes called the inverse problematic accompanying the intrinsic method:

"What is the deformed and non-trivially decomposed cross product that can be associated with a given polynomial of degree two?"
