you seem to assume that R^2 approx a^2+b^2 ??
No approximations involved: R^2 = a^2 + b^2
if R = radius and (a,b) = midpoint .
where is a problem with circle fit?
[ ... ]
this is clearly a nonlinear least squares problem.

While my formulation is _linear_ all over the place.
this should give at least a reasonable first guess for the nonlinear problem
and will in many cases be already a very satisfacting solution.
Yes. But the point is that I _hate_ nonlinear problems. :(

Hmm, another try which i did recently: 
Let the coordinates of all N points yi,xi
and let yi',xi' be the coordinates of the set of points
translated to their mean.
denote
ßi = arctan(yi'/xi')
then the minimization means in terms of a projected circle with
center (0,0) and optimal radius r to estimate:
Sum (xi'  r*cos(ßi))²+(yi'r*sin(ßi)² = min
Derivative:
Sum 2(r*cos²(ßi) xi*cos(ßi) + 2(r*sin²(ßi) yi*sin(ßi)) = 0
2r Sum(cos²(ßi)+sin²(ßi)) = 2 Sum (xi*cos(ßi)) + yi*sin(ßi))
denote
laei = sqrt(xi'² + yi'²)
then
2r Sum 1 = 2 Sum (xi'² / laei) + yi'²/laei)
Sum (xi'² + yi'²)/laei
r = 
N
Sum laei
r = 
N
r = Mean (laei)
... which generalizes easily to more dimensions.

There is an article on elliptic integrals and elliptic functions.

Either the first most likely since it contain algol 60 code provides an
algorithm to compute first and second elliptic integrals with complex
argument and real modulus. If its the first the second looks like
errata, and the third I don;t recall seeing.
its at guttenburg(sp??) online library.

Re: Newton Raphson variants...



For equations having one unknown there are numerous variants which are
more efficient than Newton's method, the most well known ones mentioned
before. For systems of equations the situation changes, there are not
as many. In any case one has to compare carefully the number of
function evaluations and derivative(s) used for each iteration in order
to derive reasonable conclusions. E.g. there is a method having order
1+sqrt(2) (for "single" roots) which uses one evaluation of f and one
for its first derivative per step which works for systems too. The
computational costs are comparable to Newton's method if implemented
reasonably. See Numerische Mathematik, 32 (1979) and 38 (1982). As far
as I know there is no method using one value of f and one evaluation of
the jacobian per step which has higher order.

Re: a^2+b^2 = c^2+d^2

Robert,
According to the initial problem "let P be the number of primitive
solutions to the Pythagorean triple a^2+b^2 = c^2 with hypotenuse c less
than a bound N. Then P/N = 1/(2pi) as N > infinity", I think theat the
OP question is :
"let P be the number of primitive solutions to the integer equation
a^2+b^2 = c^2+d^2 = z with z *less than* a bound N. Then does the ratio
p/Sqrt(N) approach a real constant as N > infinity? Can it be expressed
as a rational multiple of pi?".

Hello Patrick and Robert,
My apologies for the confusion. I'll try to make it clearer. Given the
equation,
a^2+b^2 = c^2+d^2 = z
let p be the number of primitive solutions with *hypotenuse sqrt[z]
less than* a bound N.
Case 1:
For c=d=0, and z a square, Lehmer proved the function F(N): = p/N =
1/(2pi) as N > infinity. Example, for N = 10, we only have the
solution (3,4,5) giving F(N) = 1/10 = 0.1. The sequence of F(N) for N =
10, 10^2, 10^3, 10^4,... is
F(N) = 0.1, 0.16, 0.158, 0.1593, 0.15919, ...
converging to 1/(2pi) = 0.159154...
Case 2:
However, let (a,b,c,d) all nonzero with z not necessarily a square.
(Hence we are looking for a pair of triangles with integral legs with
the same hypotenuse.) Example, for N = 10, there are only 3 primitive
solutions,
1^2+7^2 = 5^2+5^2 = 7.07^2
1^2+8^2 = 4^2+7^2 = 8.06^2
2^2+9^2 = 6^2+7^2 = 9.21^2
so F(N) = p/N = 3/10 = 0.3.
Questions: 1) What is the sequence of F(N) for this? 2) Does it
converge to some constant? 3) If yes, can it be expressed in terms of
pi, analogous to Lehmer's result?
I hope it is clearer now.
P.S. The sequence of F(N) for case 2 for N = 10, 10^2, 10^3,... can
easily be ascertained by anyone with programming skills which I hope
someone in this channel would be curious enough to do so.
