Subject: Deciding which side a numerically generated line you are on From: Dale Date: 16 Jan, 2009 23:41:02 Message: 1 of 9 
I am looking at a number of functions of two variables (say x and y), and I am restricting my attention to x \in [pi/2, pi/2] and y \in [pi, pi]. Call this set S \subset R^2. The problem is such that I really only want to look at some of the data in this subset of the plane. I numerically generate some boundary curves that separate feasible (x,y) coordinates from infeasible ones (by solving a system of two equations in two unknowns), and I need to be able to decide if an arbitrary point in S is on one side or the other side of the numerically generated curve. I have the points on the curve as a 2xn array, each column of which is a point (x,y) on the curve.

This makes perfect sense, thank you! I'll let you know once I implement it, hopefully it should be as straightforward as you made it sound :)
