vec normal_ellipsoid(const double &u, const double &v, const double &a1, const double &a2, const double &a3)

Provides the normalized vector to an ellipsoid with semi-principal axes of length a1, a2, a3. The direction of the normalized vector is set by angles u and v. These 2 angles correspond to the rotations in the plan defined by the center of the ellipsoid, a1 and a2 directions for u, a1 and a3 ones for v. u = 0 corresponds to a1 direction and v = 0 correspond to a3 one.
