HI! I have the following problem : Let A1 = x^2 + y^2 + z^2 = R^2 (* be a sphere *) A2 = x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 + z^2/c^2 = 1 (* be a ellisoid *) with c>b>a and c>R>a Plot the intersection of A1 and A2 for c>R>a. I can do this on MAPLE, but get messed up because of the lines showing up through the back . I think Mma has a hidden line removal facility tyhat would come in handy here. regards, bappa.
