distance_to_position_sphere_test, a MATLAB code which calls distance_to_position_sphere(), which estimates the positions of cities given a city-to-city distance table. The cities are presumed to lie on a sphere, and to be sufficiently separated that the curvature of the sphere must be accounted for.
