If you had a collection of dots that looked like they all surrounded a line, how would you find the line? What if you suspected they came from a circle, an arch or a general curve, and what if they were in three dimensional space? I will be discussing research I did into these questions during an REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) last summer, and what I have learned since then.
