My problem is this:

  I have two ellipses that in general are different (lengths of minor/major
  axes may differ) and are positioned at random in the XY-plane
  with the condition that they do not overlap or touch at any point along their

  The problem is to find the convex hull for these two ellipses -- fast.
  Any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated

  Please reply direct to my email since I am still unable to get messages
  from the MathGroup list.
