AtoG(parA, tol = 1e-06)
GtoA(parG, conicType = c("e", "h"))
parab3toA(ADF, theta = 0)
FEDtoA(focus = c(0, 0), directrix = c(1, 0, 1), eccentricity = 0.5)

Arguments

parA

The six coefficients in the quadratic Ax^2 + Bxy + Cy^2 +Dx + Ey +F = 0

tol

A small value, used to check whether small coefficient values might be actually zero. See "Details."

parG

a five-element vector "h,v,a,b,theta" . See "Details" for the standard equation form for this.

conicType

Because the 'hvab' equation has a sign difference for ellipses vs. hyperbolas, it is necessary to indicate which kind of input is intended. See "Details."

focus

location of the conic sections focus.

directrix

the 3-element directrix.

eccentricity

the eccentricity of the conic section.

ADF

The A,D,F coeffients in the standard quadratic. Thus, the x^2 term, the x term, and the constant term.

theta

An angle by which the entire parabola is to be rotated.

Details

The tol input for AtoG checks two conditions. First, is B practically zero, in which case B is set to exactly zero, implying no rotation of the conic section. Second, is B^2 - 4*A*C almost zero, implying that the conic is probably a parabola, and conversion to 'hvab' form is not useful.

The "hvab" form for describing an ellipse or a hyperbola looks like [Center(1:2), Axes(1:2)/2] angle A, to fill the equation

((x-h)cosA +(y-v)sinA)^2/a^2 + ((x-h)sinA-(y-v)cosA)^2/b^2 = 1 The length of the axes are 2*a, 2*b .

A discussion of the focus/directrix/eccentricity form of a conic section is rather lengthy and not presented here. One short introduction can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conic_section#Eccentricity,_focus_and_directrix
