Volume of the Off-center Spherical Pyramidal Trunk

Authors: Richard J. Mathar

The volume inside intersecting spheres may be computed by a standard method which computes a surface integral over all visible sections of the spheres. If the visible sections are divided in simple zonal sections, the individual contribution by each zone follows from basic analysis. We implement this within a semi-numerical program which marks the zones individually as visible or invisible.
