Subject: [geometry] fit an ellipse to a polygon

Hello,
I have a model::polygon, and i want to fit an ellipse to it (see link
below). do you have suggestions of how to use (builtin) boost::geometry
functionality as much as possible?
do you have alternative suggestions to characterize the polygon, e.g. to
compute the principal axes of the inertia tensor? the solution is
allowed to be heuristic.
thanks
