Function for a Pursuit Curve

  1. May 7, 2012 #1
    I am trying to find out the equation for a curve:

    I have tried some equations e.g.

    However, I cannot get it sufficiently accurate.

    Can you please help? At least a pointer in the right direction?

    Many Thanks!

    (PS: Please note that this is not a HW assignment of any sort. Also, you may need to refresh the links at least twice sometimes to get it to work - apologies!)
