Does anyone know of an algorithm to detect the intersection of any two functions - both for individual points within a fixed range of x values and determining whether or not total points of intersection are finite or infinite over an infinite range of x values? Also, is this possible to do this when you rotate the plot around a third axis (such as using a graph for each edge of a polygon).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
