sphericalRegion edit page

The class sphericalRegion describes a region on the sphere that is bounded by small circles. For a list of normal vectors \(N_i\) and coefficients \(\alpha_i\) the region is defined as all vectors \(v\) on the sphere that satify for all \(i\) the condition

\[v \cdot N_i \le \alpha_i\]


sR = sphericalRegion(N)
sR = sphericalRegion(N,alpha)
sR = sphericalRegion(N,'antipodal')


N vector3d
alpha double (default is 0 which corresponds to a great circle)

Class Properties

N the normal vector3d of the bounding circles
alpha the cosine of the bounding circle
