## Computers & Programming

Below are titles related to computers and programming. Please also see the AutoCAD and CAD / CAM categories.
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.
