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 (built-in)
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.
for information on how to fit an ellipse, see here (from p. 46):
