Item description for Mathematical Tools In Computer Graphics With C# Implementations by Alexandre Hardy & Willi-Hans Steeb...
Mathematics is vital for an understanding of computer graphics. This volume helps the reader gain such an understanding by presenting all introductory and most advanced topics in the field of computer graphics with mathematical descriptions and derivations. Offering a balance of theory, applications, and code, the underlying numerical methods and algorithms are derived and a large number of examples are given. The book begins with a discussion of basic graphics tools such as vectors, matrices, and quaternions, and then builds up to more advanced topics such as the intersection of three-dimensional objects. Both classical and newer topics, such as parameterization, wavelets, fractals, and geometry images, are covered. In particular, the book contains all of the classes in C# necessary for computer graphics, providing a full explanation of the C# code and C# implementations for almost all algorithms.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mathematical Tools In Computer Graphics With C# Implementations?
Very good! Jan 10, 2009
Very good but not for the faint of heart. You better know some math first. But let that not frighten you. All is well written and explained in a clear way. The dot and cross products for vectors for instance are explained without the usual geometric figures, probably to leave place for a bunch of other more interesting ones! Lots of code examples. The only minor point: you can download them from a site, but on my system they come in one long line, so I had to do some editing.
