# A point on the geodesic

The function evaluates a geodesic $\gamma_{x,y}\colon\mathbb R \to\M$ at $t$, i.e. returns $\gamma_{x,y}(t)$ by using the exponential and logarithmic map. When the geodesic is not unique this function still returns a deterministic single value based on the choice of the logarithmic map. This also allows for evaluating the geodesic of an image pixelwise, i.e. if $x,y$ are images, we obtain a pixelwise evaluation.
