public Ellipse(Frame frame, int form, double[] centre, double[] point1, double[] point2, Region unc)
A Ellipse is a Region which represents a elliptical area within the supplied 2dimensional Frame.
frame
 A pointer to the Frame in which the region is defined. It must
have exactly 2 axes. A deep copy is taken of the supplied Frame.
This means that any subsequent changes made to the Frame using the
supplied pointer will have no effect the Region.form
 Indicates how the ellipse is described by the remaining parameters.
A value of zero indicates that the ellipse is specified by a
centre position and two positions on the circumference. A value of
one indicates that the ellipse is specified by its centre position,
the halflengths of its two axes, and the orientation of its first
axis.centre
 An array of 2 doubles,
containing the coordinates at the centre of
the ellipse.point1
 An array of 2 doubles. If "form"
is zero, this array should contain the coordinates of one of the four
points where an axis of the ellipse crosses the circumference of the
ellipse.
If "form"
is one, it should contain the lengths of semimajor and
semiminor axes of the ellipse, given as geodesic distances
within the Frame.point2
 An array of 2 doubles. If "form"
is zero, this array should containing the coordinates at some other
point on the circumference of the ellipse, distinct from
"point1". If "form"
is one, the first element of this array should hold the angle
between the second axis of the Frame and the first ellipse axis
(i.e. the ellipse axis which is specified first in the
"point1"
array), and the second element will be ignored. The angle should be
given in radians, measured positive in the same sense as rotation
from the positive direction of the second Frame axis to the positive
direction of the first Frame axis.unc
 An optional pointer to an existing Region which specifies the
uncertainties associated with the boundary of the Box being created.
The uncertainty in any point on the boundary of the Box is found by
shifting the supplied "uncertainty" Region so that it is centred at
the boundary point being considered. The area covered by the
shifted uncertainty Region then represents the uncertainty in the
boundary position. The uncertainty is assumed to be the same for
all points.
If supplied, the uncertainty Region must be of a class for which all instances are centrosymetric (e.g. Box, Circle, Ellipse, etc.) or be a Prism containing centrosymetric component Regions. A deep copy of the supplied Region will be taken, so subsequent changes to the uncertainty Region using the supplied pointer will have no effect on the created Box. Alternatively, a NULL Object pointer may be supplied, in which case a default uncertainty is used equivalent to a box 1.0E6 of the size of the Box being created.
The uncertainty Region has two uses: 1) when the astOverlap function compares two Regions for equality the uncertainty Region is used to determine the tolerance on the comparison, and 2) when a Region is mapped into a different coordinate system and subsequently simplified (using astSimplify), the uncertainties are used to determine if the transformed boundary can be accurately represented by a specific shape of Region.
