#include <CGAL/Spherical_kernel_intersections.h>
Constructs the intersection elements between the two input objects and stores them in the OutputIterator in lexicographic order, where both, SphericalType1
and SphericalType2
, can be either.
See Chapter Chapter_3D_Spherical_Geometry_Kernel for details on a spherical kernel instantiation.
When using a spherical kernel, in addition to the function overloads documented here, the following function overloads are also available.
The iterator versions of those functions can be used in conjunction with Dispatch_output_iterator
.
Since both the number of intersections, if any, and types of the interesection results depend on the arguments, the function expects an output iterator on Kernel::Intersect_3(Type1, Type2)
as presented below.
Sphere_3<SphericalKernel>
,Plane_3<SphericalKernel>
,Line_3<SphericalKernel>
,Circle_3<SphericalKernel>
,Line_arc_3<SphericalKernel>
orCircular_arc_3<SphericalKernel>
,and depending on the types SphericalType1
and SphericalType2
, the computed type can be
std::pair<Circular_arc_point_3<SphericalKernel>, unsigned>
, where the unsigned integer is the multiplicity of the corresponding intersection point between obj1
and obj2
,SphericalType1
, when SphericalType1
and SphericalType2
are equal, and if the two objets obj1
and obj2
are equal,Line_3<SphericalKernel>
or Circle_3<SphericalKernel>
when SphericalType1
and SphericalType2
are twodimensional objects intersecting along a curve (2 planes, or 2 spheres, or one plane and one sphere),Circular_arc_3<SphericalKernel>
in case of an overlap of two circular arcs orLine_arc_3<SphericalKernel>
in case of an overlap of two line segments. OutputIterator CGAL::intersection  (  const Type1 &  obj1,
