I need to find the geodesic between 2 fixed points with respect to the integral of square root of(1+sin^2x(dg/dx)^2)dx where x is the parameter. It says to show that the geodesic has the form cos x=A sin x cos g+B sin x cos g

What does the g function refer to? - Apr 17th 2013, 06:15 AMHallsofIvyRe: Calculus help
Misinterpretation.
