Vector Analysis for Computer Graphics (Paperback)John Vince (author)
- Not available
This book is a complete introduction to vector analysis, especially within the context of computer graphics. The author shows why vectors are useful and how it is possible to develop analytical skills in manipulating vector algebra. Even though vector analysis is a relatively recent development in the history of mathematics, it has become a powerful and central tool in describing and solving a wide range of geometric problems. The book is divided into eleven chapters covering the mathematical foundations of vector algebra and its application to, among others, lines, planes, intersections, rotating vectors, and vector differentiation.

From the reviews:
"Vince's book applies to more than computer graphics: it is a resource for many areas in applied mathematics. ... Students in computer graphics courses would find it very useful if their class discussions moved into the mathematical fundamentals underlying the tools. ... Undergraduate students especially lack the mathematics background that this book provides. ... It is comprehensive and coherent, and a good addition to the library of any computational scientist." (Anthony J. Duben, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (8), August, 2008)
