## Mathematics

Mathematics on all levels is a necessary tool used within all manufacturing and metalworking industries. Industrial Press addresses these needs with numerous references, texts, and guidebooks from trusted and well-known authors and practitioners. From the very basic to the more advanced, you will find everything from shop mathematics to metalcutting formulas to engineering formulas to math for mechanical work to math for computer graphics to engineering mathematics to differential equations to linear algebra and fundamentals of forecasting.

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.

2. ## Geometric Transformations for 3D Modeling (CD-ROM in PDF)

This is the CD-ROM version of the printed book.

Written from a mathematical standpoint accessible to students, teachers, and professionals studying or practicing in engineering, mathematics, or physics, this second edition is a comprehensive introduction to the theory and application of transformations. Presenting the more abstract foundation material in the first three chapters, Geometric Transformations in 3D Modeling reduces the clutter of theoretical derivation and development in the remainder of the text and introduces the operational and more application-oriented tools and concepts as the need arises. It assumes the reader has already taken analytic geometry and first-year calculus and has a working knowledge of basic matrix and vector algebra. This self-contained resource is sure to appeal to those working in 3D modeling, geometric modeling, computer graphics, animation, robotics, and kinematics.
