Seen too many references to it but can't find what is that algorithm about. Please help

Check electronics section in this board. If I remeber correctly , Gilberts is inverse of Henrys. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I believe its an algorithm to compute polgon collisions -- "google" it

This won't help in this particular case but when I need to know about an algorithm I look here:

Unfortunately Gilbert's algorithm is not listed but you might find the link useful.

mrgone,

Consider yourself corrected. A gilbert is a CGS unit of magnetmotive force. A henry is a MKS unit of inductance. Completely unrelated. The Advisory Committee on Nomenclature of the IEC adopted the name gilbert for the cgs unit of magnetomotive force in 1930, at its meetings in Scandinavia. Ratch

Thanks donkey!

Great site. No Gilbert's algorithm, but lots of other cool stuff.
