I have the cartesian coordinates (x,y,z) of set of points that are distributed in a region of space that could be circumscribed by an ellipse if your camera is angled from origin towards the centre of this region. I plot these points with scatter3.
I want to find the ellipse (in any form that defines its location and shape in space) that encompass these points so that it passes through the ones at the edge and has the minimum area. Thanks in advance for your help.
