Looking for Maple/Matha collaborator to derive equations of quadrics from equations of skew line pairs
Posted:

I am working with two senior scientists from Princeton and PennState on certain previously unnoticed correlations between protein message space and protein structure space.
A consideration of the globular nature of proteins in relation to those quadrics which are/aren't surfaces of revolution suggests that it would be beneficial for our team to know whether certain pairs of skew lines generate onesheeted hyperboloids or hypars (a la Hilber/ VossCohen), and what the equatioons of the generated surfaces are.
Can anyone recommend someone who's done this and is ready to "plugand play"?
Mention will of course be made in a paper to be submitted late summer/ early Fall.
Thanks for any time you can afford to spend considering this matter.
