Dear Sir,

Presently, I am a graduate student at Nanyang Technological University
(NTU), Singapore doing my Masters in Engineering. My project requires
the use of Mathematica for simulation of EM wave, etc.

My question is as follows :

I have a 3D cone (it's equation) and an equation of a plane which is
placed at a distance from the cone and tilted at an angle with respect
to the cone. The plane is a 100% reflective surface. How do I program
Mathematica to simulate the reflected image of the cone and the
equivalent equation?

Please reply to me asap via e-mail (p7304435i at Thank you!
