  1. Vectors and Matrices for Geometric and 3D Modeling

    Vectors are perhaps the most important mathematical objects used in modeling and animation. They have the properties of magnitude and direction, and provide visual understanding of model construction and analysis. Matrices are natural and hardworking partners of vectors.

    This work presents lessons on vectors and matrices in geometric and 3D modeling—the mathematics at the foundation of computer graphics applications. The lessons appear as chapters, generally organized from introductory to more complex topics. Within each chapter, there is a similar order of elementary-to-advanced discussion.

  10. Heating Systems Troubleshooting & Repair

    Most of the work technicians routinely perform is in maintaining existing equipment as opposed to installing new systems. The procedures and visual observation conditions presented in this title will enable technicians to perform their tasks more effectively. By knowing how the equipment is designed, built, and how the materials behave over time, they will be better able to execute a maintenance program extending equipment life and reducing unplanned malfunctions. This book’s emphasis is on implementing these actions correctly and in a timely basis so that equipment experiences an increase in “life expectancy,” reliability, more efficient energy performance, and a reduction in the possibility of future failures and liability. While the main focus of this work is on equipment installed in residential homes, the procedures detailed certainly apply to larger commercial heating equipment as well.
