class ROOT::Math::Impl::Plane3D< T >

Class describing a geometrical plane in 3 dimensions.

A Plane3D is a 2 dimensional surface spanned by two linearly independent vectors. The plane is described by the equation $$a*x + b*y + c*z + d = 0$$ where (a,b,c) are the components of the normal vector to the plane $$n = (a,b,c)$$ and $$d = - n \dot x$$, where x is any point belonging to plane. More information on the mathematics describing a plane in 3D is available on MathWord. The Plane3D class contains the 4 scalar values in T which represent the four coefficients, fA, fB, fC, fD. fA, fB, fC are the normal components normalized to 1, i.e. fA**2 + fB**2 + fC**2 = 1
