Hi All,
I'm trying to generate a n-sided equalaterial polygon inscribed in a ellipse. I intend to impliment this in code, so I'm open to iterative as well as closed form solutions.

I can think of some relatively simple methods to obtain a non-equal side inscribed polygon, but I really need to figure out a method to generate an equalateral polygon.

Thank you.
