Hi, ist this a question ? an answer ? or what. Any way, it is the most long winded way to test the sign of (x^2+y^2+z^2-(a^2+b^2))^2-4 a b (b^2-z^2) if the point is {x,y,z} and the minor radius of the torus is b, and the major radius a. It is still the question "How can we make this test more clumsy and even slower ?" Regards Jens
