uxarray.grid.utils._newton_raphson_solver_for_gca_constLat(init_cart, gca_cart, max_iter=1000, verbose=False)#

Solve for the intersection point between a great circle arc and a constant latitude.

  • init_cart (np.ndarray) – Initial guess for the intersection point.

  • w0_cart (np.ndarray) – First vector defining the great circle arc.

  • w1_cart (np.ndarray) – Second vector defining the great circle arc.

  • max_iter (int, optional) – Maximum number of iterations. Defaults to 1000.

  • verbose (bool, optional) – Whether to print verbose output. Defaults to False.


The intersection point or None if the solver fails to converge.

Return type:

np.ndarray or None
