Geometry library for matlab. Performs geometric computations on points, lines, circles, polygons...

bisector(varargin)
function ray = bisector(varargin)
%BISECTOR Return the bisector of two lines, or 3 points
%
%   RAY = bisector(LINE1, LINE2);
%   create the bisector of the two lines, given as [x0 y0 dx dy].
%
%   RAY = bisector(P1, P2, P3);
%   create the bisector of lines (P2 P1) and (P2 P3).
%
%   The result has the form [x0 y0 dx dy], with [x0 y0] being the origin
%   point ans [dx dy] being the direction vector, normalized to have unit
%   norm.

% compute line angles
a1 = lineAngle(line1);
a2 = lineAngle(line2);

% compute bisector angle (angle of first line + half angle between lines)
angle = mod(a1 + mod(a2-a1+2*pi, 2*pi)/2, pi*2);

% create the resulting ray
ray = [point cos(angle) sin(angle)];
