Hi all,
I donĀ“t know how to calculate the distance between two points along a curve with a given function.

In particular I need to calculate in MATLAB the x,y coordinates of the point which is at a given distance from another point along the curve.

The curve is the gaussian one (with all the data to specify it).


Thanks in advance!

Cheers
