Intersect two ellipsoids
Needs Answer
The Intersect function appears to accept two quadrics as inputs. When I define two ellipsoids (eq1 and eq2 in the example) the Intersect(eq1,eq2) command returns "undefined". Is this a limitation of the command (it seems to work fine for two spheres) or am I missing something else?

because your instersection is not a conic
I can get an intersection to work in the CAS environment, by using Solve({eq1,eq2},{x,y,z})
Still, this occasionally glitches and disappears (e.g. a=1, b=1.8,c=1 f=2, g=1, h=1)
(I wonder if this is for a moment returning a complex value somehow... but not sure why)

Returns a conic defined in case where the intersection is actually a conic.
