## Very nice solution...

@Rouben Rostamian  Yes, great.
I've been playing around with  this algorithm.
I got two geodesics. One has a length of approximately 3.8437,

and the short one has a length of approximately 3.7288.

## Thank you...

@C_R
Of course, I didn’t dig that deep, but I think that, for example, schoolchildren need to be shown seemingly simple things from different sides.

## Thank you....

@Ronan  Thank you. Let me remind you that if you have any questions, you are always welcome.

## About degrees of freedom...

I remembered the old message regarding degrees of freedom. If you skip the beginning, here is a model of a platform with one degree of freedom. At the same time, it allows you to reproduce quite complex movements, that is, its direct task is uniquely solved by the position of the crank.
Maybe it will come in handy someday.

## Yes indeed...

@Christian Wolinski
Thanks, I wouldn't have noticed that myself...
I had another idea. For example, if you look separately at the graph of the first equation, you can see that it is intersected by parallel lines (1/2)*Pi^2*x2+x1-(1/2)*Pi = 0, the distance between which is 2*Pi. That is, moving along these straight lines, we track subsets of the curve of the first equation, then move along these sections of the curve and find the intersection with the curve of the second equation. (For the second equation there are also similar straight lines.)

And this way you can also view any selected area.

## Very nice...

@Christian Wolinski  On behalf of the authors of the publication, I give you a +.

## Sorry, I have Maple17...

@C_R,  well, I don’t know, I have Maple17, and it gives
only
for both allvalues(solve(f, x, allsolutions)) and solve(f, x, allsolutions).

## For some variety...

```This is the equation of a fixed surface
f1 := x3-0.5e-1*exp(x1)/(0.5e-1+x1^4+x2^4);```

The equation of a surface that rolls without slipping is shown in the picture.

And a simple torus with radiuses 1 and 0.5.  The picture shows the equation of the surface, rolling without slipping.

## Spline connection...

To clear my conscience, I added a spline connection to compensate for slight changes in the length of the middle link. This connection is implemented based on the polygon function.

## ......

@mmcdara  So it is, and so it is almost everywhere. I understand you perfectly.

## Very interesting...

I regret that for many reasons I cannot maintain communication both on general topics and on professional issues. But I can enjoy watching such communication with your participation.
+ from me.

## Now I see that everything is normal with...

@Kitonum
My attempts were on the forehead through the solution of a system of polynomial equations. I compiled several variants of systems of polynomial equations for the condition of the presence of an inscribed square, but they either could not be solved, or gave a very rough version of the solution.

## Different dividers...

@Rouben Rostamian
We are talking about completely different dividers. I use the same normalization to move evenly along the curve, and I have the same length of 180. The message for vv was directly about the Draghilev method, and this is due to the possible absence of 0 in the denominator (the Cramer method of solving systems of linear equations is used there) when solving the ODE. And in the process of numerically solving the ODE, we can use normalization or not use it, that is, this has no direct relation to the Draghilev method.
Of course, if I understand you correctly.

## One of the ways to solve...

@Axel Vogt
Immediately I apologize for the quality of performance.
Part one. Here we show how a system of polynomial equations is obtained from the original system.

EQ_1.mw
Part two. Here we get a set of starting points for building solutions in Part 3.

In the third part, using the Draghilev method, we obtain one of the subsets of solutions, build graphs of its projections on our 3d, and selectively check the resulting solutions for the residual value. The solution period seems to be 2Pi.

## Will try...

@Axel Vogt  Thank you for your interest. I have separate pieces of texts of the decision in rather amateurish execution. I will try to accompany them with comments.
