how to calculate the intersection area of two ellipses
43 views (last 30 days)
hello, how can i calculte the intersection area of two ellipses, each ellipse is characterized by(x,y,a,b,w).I thought of solving the system of equations of the two ellipses ,then calculate the area bounded by the points found as solution. would you please help me ?

To create an ellipse numerically in 2-D is very easy - just see the FAQ. http://matlab.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#How_do_I_create_an_ellipse.3F To rotate it, just multiply the coordinates by the rotation matrix [cos(theta), -sin(theta); cos(theta), sin(theta)]. Then just AND the two ellipse images
intersectionArea = ellipsoid1 & ellipsoid2;
pixelArea = sum(intersectionArea (:)); % Compute the area in pixels.
