Small Circles and Ellipses
Define small circles and ellipses
A small circle is the intersection of a plane with the surface of a sphere. An ellipse is the intersection of a plane with the surface of a cone. Use these functions to generate the coordinates of ellipses and small circles and to find the intersection points of small circles.
