Hence the intersection curves of [S.sup.2] and the elliptic cylinder defined by 2 sin[theta][y.sup.2]+sin[theta](1+cos[phi])[z.sup.2] -(2 cos[theta]sin[phi])z=sin[theta](1-cos[phi]) are divided into two parts, that is, the upper parts (z[is greater than or equal to]0) are in .sub.[phi][C.sub.[theta]] and the lower parts) (z[is less than or equal to]0) are in .sub.[phi][C.sub.[pi]-[theta]].
