Re: WTD: point intersection in space


Don,

One way of approaching intersections is through Grassmann's regressive 
product.
See Chapters 3 and 4 at
http://www.ses.swin.edu.au/homes/browne/grassmannalgebra/book/

If you would like any specific formulas generated that you don't find 
here, please let me know.
(However, I will be incommunicado from now until June 16)
