Given an input primal gear, the toolbox compute its associated dual gear together with the associated distance between the gear centers.

The gears are described as a discretized polar curve. The dual gear is solved by a numerical integration of the non-sliding condition. The distance between the centers is bound using a dichotomic search to ensure the same periodicity for the two gears.
