The idea of the method is as follows: one starts with an initial guess which is... Continue Reading →
In geometry, an envelope of a family of curves in the plane is a curve that is tangent to each member of the family at some point, and these points of tangency together form the whole envelope. Classically, a point on the envelope can be thought of as the... Continue Reading →
