I'm trying to find the parameterization of the intersection of a cylinder x^2+y^2=1 and the plane x+y+z=1, but I'm not exactly sure how to go about it. Any guidance on how to find this intersection in a parameterized form would be most appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In general I don't know a great deal about finding intersections of various surfaces and shapes in r^3 or how to parameterize these things. Googling hasn't turned up anything particularly usefull, but a few scattered examples. I was also wondering if anyone knew of useful sites with this information.

Thanks
