Abstract: We solve the following geometric problem, which arises in several threedimensional applications in computational geometry: For which arrangements of two lines and two spheres in R 3 are there infinitely many lines simultaneously transversal to the two lines and tangent to the two spheres?We also treat a generalization of this problem to projective quadrics. Replacing the spheres in R 3 by quadrics in projective space P 3 , and fixing the lines and one general quadric, we give the following complete geometric …
