I am working on a Matlab sim and I need to find the shorted distance of a point to an Elliposid surface.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The point is defined as [X,Y,Z].

Elliposid center is defined as [Xc,Yc,Zc]

Ellipsoid is defined as

A B C

E F G

H I J

(I dont if thats sufficient information for ellipsoid, assuming its having standard equation.)
