    Re: On LOPs

    Steven,
    
    Could  you please explain to us why the size of the confidence ellipse would
    depend in part on the angles that the three LOPs cross at? This is news to me.
    Could you post the formula you are using so we can study this dependency?
    
    With regards,
    
    Herbert Prinz
