Bipolar and toroidal coordinates

  1. Feb 15, 2016 #1

    I'm trying to understand toroidal coordinates, that are a 3D version of bipolar coordinates. Well, I don't understand any of them, already cheked wiki and wolfram sites, but they don't give any clear explanation (in my opinion).

    Is there a way to get an intuition for obtaining the cartesian coordinates x,y,z in terms of bipolar and toroidal coordinates?

    Thanks for your help

    PD: zorry 4 bad grammar
