Hi,
I have the following problem, for which I hope there is a matlab
function to solve it.
I have a line consisting of x and y coordinates, but for 1 x
coordinate, there are multiple y coordinates and vice versa. Is there
a smart way to compute the area underneath (or better: enclosed by)
the line?
Best regards,
Jaap
