Dear colleagues:

Those of you interested in the BSP equations of the general geometric shapes
may visit the following website:


Here I've compiled the BSP equations of the semi-ellipsoid, the elliptical
solid and the stadium solid. These equations can be used for the following
geometric shapes which are commonly used in defining the body segments:

Semi-ellipsoid --> semi-elipsoid, ellipsoid, ellipsoid of revolution,
sphere, etc.
Elliptical solid --> elliptical solid, truncated circular cone, elliptical
circular cylinder, elliptical zone (disk), etc.
Stadium solid --> staduim solid, stadium cylinder, stadium disk, etc.

Your feedback will be appreciated.
