 Author Comment/Response Ted Thizzle 09/19/12 6:25pm Hey Guys! Any help today would be greatly appreciated! I have two functions in 3D space that I am trying to find the minimum distance between. It sounds relatively straightforward but there is no documentation out there to help me out! One of my functions is a complex trigonometric piecewise defined by r[t] and the other is a very simple line {-3 + t, 5 + 2 t, 0}... How would you guys go about solving this problem? Know of any helpful Mathematica tools that can do this? Ted Attachment: Dist.nb, URL: ,
