My question is a lot simpler than the whole process, but I've reached a plateau and need a push. My issue is that I want to take 2 curves, one in the XZ-plane, the other in the YZ-plane, combine them and project them down to the XY plane, but make it topographical (i.e. contain Z values given an (X,Y) coordinate).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm working with a very simple case of f(x) = exp(-x^2) and f(y) = exp(-y^2), so identical curves, just in different planes. The f(x) will give coordinates in (x,z) form, and f(y) gives (y,z). I'll worry about the programming, I just need help with the pseudoocode mathematics.

I'm not sure how to go about overlaying the two functions. I believe this should be a projection-type problem. I essentially have two vectors, lets call them fcnx (XZ) and fcny (YZ). The x and y values from the two will give me my (x,y) coordinate as desired, the z values are where I'm having my brain fart. Should I be taking the magnitude of the two z values? (sqrt(z1^2 + z2^2)?)

Any help?

Thanks in advance,

MS
