Abstract : AUTOJOM is a computer program that will generate the coefficients of any quadratic equation used to define conic volumes (e.g., cones, ellipsoids, spheres, cylinders, and paraboloids) and also the coefficients of the planes needed to define parallel-epipeds, wedges, and pyramids. The amount of input by the user is minimal and involves only such items as a single reference point, a few directional vectors to orientate the surface in space, and a few scalars, e.g., radii. The running time of AUTOJOM is on the order of 5 to 10 seconds for generating the coefficients of the equations describing each volume. The amount of core memory needed is about 60,000 octal units.
