Calling Sequence

ellipticArc(c, a, b, r, opts)

Parameters

c

-

center of the ellipticArc

a

-

major of the ellipticArc

b

-

minor of the ellipticArc

r

-

range of the arc in radians

opts

-

zero or more options as described below and in plot/options

Options

• 

filled : true or false

  

Specifies whether to fill the inside of the arc. The default is false.

• 

numpoints : positive integer

  

Specifies the number of points to evaluate. The default is 50.

• 

super = positive real or list of two positive reals

  

Specifies that a (generalized) superelliptic arc should be created. See plottools[ellipse] for more details on generalized superellipses.

Description

• 

The ellipticArc command creates a two-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is an elliptic arc of an ellipse centered at c with major a and minor b.  The arc ranges in r.

• 

The plot data object produced by the ellipticArc command can be used in a PLOT data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.

• 

Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value. For more information, see plottools and plot/options.

Compatibility

• 

The plottools[ellipticArc] command was updated in Maple 2019.

• 

The super option was introduced in Maple 2019.
