1. Square the equations for x and y:
x^2 = c^2*cos^2(a)+d^2*cos^2(b)+2*c*d*cos(a)*cos(b)
y^2 = c^2*sin^2(a)+d^2*sin^2(b)+2*c*d*sin(a)*sin(b)
2. Add both equations:
3. Solve for (a-b):
4. Insert the expression for a:
with m = acos(((x^2+y^2)-(c^2+d^2))/(2*c*d))
5. Using
cos(b+m)=cos(b)cos(m)-sin(b)sin(m), you get
6. Replace cos(b) by sqrt(1-sin^2(b)):
7. Squaring both sides of the last equation
leads to a quadratic equation in sin(b).
Solve this equation for sin(b) and thus b.
8. Use
to get a.
