ellipse coordinates
Posted:

Hi, I've got an ellipse of the form: z (x, y coordinate of the centre) a and b (its axis) alpha (rotation angle)
All I can find is the parameterised form of an ellipse with t (the parameter) being Pi <= t <= Pi which gives me the ellipse coordinates. I need y values on the ellipse for certain x values, i.e. y as a function of x and the above definition of my ellipse. Can somebody help me out here?
thanks loads in advance
