    Distance from point

    Given point in space P(x_0 , y_0 , z_0 ) , find the minimal distance between point and sphere: (x - a)^2 + (y - b)^2 + (z - c)^2 = r^2.

    Slope of the Unit Circle at Any Point

    How do you calculate the slope of the unit circle at any point? Unlike curves that can be written in the form y = ax^2 + bx + c, which are easy to take the derivative of, writing the unit circle in y = form would have a positive or negative in front of a square root.

    Calculate third point of triangle given angle and line length

    I have a triangle with the three points named A, B and C. I know the coordinates of A and B and need to calculate C. I also know the angle a and that |AB|=|AC|. Unfortunately the only formulas for triangles I remember, are about calculating an unknown length or angle, and I need the coordinates...

    Calculating endpoint of 3D line with start point and angle.

    So I need to calculate the start point (x1, y1, z1) of a 3D line of which I know the end point (x2, y2, z2), the angle which is 45 degrees, but where I also know y1. I furthermore know that y1<y2. So is there a simplified formula for this, given the additional info?

    Generalized Fourier Integral and Steepest descent path, Saddle point near the endpoin

    I am looking forward to solving the integration in the following equation with the assumption that $ka$ is very large \begin{align} H = 2jka\int_{-\pi/2}^{\pi/2}\cos{(\varphi-\phi)}e^{jka[\cos{\varphi}+\cos{(\varphi-\phi)}]}\ d\varphi \end{align} I used the steepest descent path method to...
