Uniform curve as a circle? Most likely not.
hi Reuel, where (a,b) is the centre, and r the radius. For the line to go through the centre you need to test if (a,b) is on the line. If the endpoints are (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), you could test the gradient: If you do a search for 'uniform curve' you'll find lots of curves that are not circles. So I wouldn't describe a circle this way. Convex hull ? Have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convex_hull Similarly for convex combination http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Convex_combination Bob
Hello. I have a question about the proper terminology and algebraic communication involved in line segments within circles. I am okay at mathematics but I have never had any training on WRITING math.
