Example 17 For simplicity, we assume that the orthotomic surface of a surface S is the ellipsoid [7/5 sin u cos v, 6/5 sin u sin v, cos u], where u [member of] [0, [pi]], and v [member of] [0, 2[pi]]: Let the light source O be at the origin (0, 0, 0): The caustic surface of S relative to O, when we use the principle curvatures, is shown
