Thus far, I believe that my research has strongly aided me to acquire the knowledge necessary to understand the concepts in my EE and essential background information. Some of the concepts I have had to learn were regarding conic sections, complex functions, infinitesimal geometry and basic differential equations with trivial solutions. Initially, my supervisor and I had settled on a format which included 2 map projections in addition to the Euler spiral. However, while writing my first draft, I realized that this would be infeasible as the depth of mathematics required to analyze 2 projections couldn’t be conveyed in the proposed word count of the sections. Thus, I, along with my supervisor, decided to utilize just the Mercator projection due to its prevalence. Another piece of feedback I received from my supervisor was regarding the formatting which I need to fix to improve the coherence of my essay.
