1. Finding the shortest path btween any two points on the surface of a sphere but use the method of the euler equations with an auxiliarty condition imposed?
Question2:
Find the shortest path between the (x,y,z) points (0,-1,0) and (0,1,0) on the conical surface z=1-(x^{2}+y^{2})^{1/2} what is the length of the path?
