RISC Summer School

I arrived today in Linz, Austria. I’m staying here for two weeks. I attend the 4th RISC Summer School in Symbolic Computation. Should be tons of fun.

Meanwhile, I sit in my hotel room. I got my lunch, but have nothing for a dinner. And while fighting with headache I try for almost 24 hours now to find an ellipse equation from two tangents, tangential points and one focus. Analytically, of course. I have a repeated feal, I miss something very easy, but yet important. I really miss Marburgs‘ blackboards in such moments. And I really fight the thought that in few hours I’ll be hungry. to screw it all and to interpolate ellipse with splines.

Picture: a very tempting, but also a very wrong solution. (What’s wrong with it?)
