For my work, I am working on a model to predict the length of different bars that you can cut from a super ellipse.

Is it possible to calculate with an analytical solution the yy-coordinate if xx is given on a rotated super ellipse?

I have found already this analytical solution for ordinary ellipses with

Where:

a=xcosαa=x \cos\alpha;

b=sinαb=\sin\alpha;

c=a2c=a^2;

d=xsinαd=x \sin\alpha;

e=cosαe=\cos\alpha;

f=b2f=b^2.

So my question is: is it possible to derive a similar equation for yy, given the general equation for a super ellipse is:

(xcosα+ysinα)nan+(xsinα−ycosα)nbn=1.

{(x\cos\alpha+y\sin\alpha)^n\over a^n}+

{(x\sin\alpha-y\cos\alpha)^n\over b^n}=1.
