Hi guys i used the fit_ellipse code by Gal to fit an ellipse to my scatter plot.
I have 2 ellipses that intersect with one another as shown and have several parameters obtained from the script for both ellipses
where X0, Y0 are centre of origin of non tilted and X0_in,Y0_in are centres of the tilted ellipse, phi is rotation
Would really like to know how to determine the area of intersection of the 2 ellipses to determine the extent of overlap. Should i use an ellipse code or can i use differentiation? Thank you!
