Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Recently i tried (and failed) to calculate the intersection volume of a sphere and a cylinder.

I found this simple problem seems not so simple for me. Searching on the web, nothing on that, so if someone can help me thank you.

(the simplified solution with the intersection area of a disk and the area delimited by two paralleles could help me too)
