Abstract:

There is an algorithm for drawing conic sections that consists of a simple basic loop and substantial change-of-octant computations. It is shown that a complete circle can be drawn using only the digital hardware required for the basic conic loop. Further, it is possible to structure this circle-drawing algorithm such that no additional computation time is needed at octant change points. Author
