In statics, Lami's theorem is an equation relating the magnitudes of three coplanar, concurrent and noncollinear forces, which keeps an object in static equilibrium, with the angles directly opposite to the corresponding forces.
Three noncollinear nodes are chosen on structure, and the coordinates of these nodes are xA, xB and xC.
Another way to do it is by choosing three noncollinear points and finding the affine transformation transformation F which transforms these points of X in into the corresponding ones in Y.
An affine transformation has six degrees of freedom and, consequently, can be computed by resorting to three noncollinear matched pairs.

Actually, only three noncollinear contour points are required to compute the applicator coordinate system transformation [T.
A Certus system (Northern Digital Inc; Waterloo, Canada) recorded the positions of at least three noncollinear infrared markers on each lower-limb segment (pelvis, thighs, legs and feet; see Figure 1 for details) at a sampling frequency of 60 Hz to compute a three-dimensional link-segment model [12].

Let's consider an Euclidean plane ([for all]) and three noncollinear given points A, B, and C in it.
The solution is to transform two noncollinear segments into a collinear segment by making a symmetry point.
In DTI, the scalar elements of this diffusion tensor matrix may be calculated on a voxel-by-voxel basis from data obtained by performing multiple DWI sequences, applying the diffusion-weighted gradient along [greater than or equal to]6 noncollinear directions, with an additional, non-diffusion-weighted (b = 0) sequence.
