From a point $$A$$ common tangents are drawn to the circle $${x^2} + {y^2} = {a^2}/2$$ and parabola $${y^2} = 4ax$$. Find the area of the quadrilateral formed by the common tangents, the chord of contact of the circle and the chord of contact of the parabola.

Let '$$d$$' be the perpendicular distance from the centre of the ellipse $${{{x^2}} \over {{a^2}}} + {{{y^2}} \over {{b^2}}} = 1$$ to the tangent drawn at a point $$P$$ on the ellipse. If $${F_1}$$ and $${F_2}$$ are the two foci of the ellipse, then show that $${\left( {P{F_1} - P{F_2}} \right)^2} = 4{a^2}\left( {1 - {{{b^2}} \over {{d^2}}}} \right)$$.
