intersection of 2 spheroids
Posted:

Hello Community,
I have the problem to intersect 2 spheroids (rotational ellipsoids) > result is a closed curve, not in a plane. In my special case the 2 spheroids share one Foki.
I developed an iterative algorithm which works fine.
My Question: Is it possible to solve the problem directly analytically? Yes or No is enough for me.
Would be great if anybody could answer this question.
Thanks, Martin
