Book Description

Students studying different branches of have to be familiar with geometry, matrices, vectors, rotation transforms, quaternions, curves and surfaces and as computer software becomes increasingly sophisticated, is also being used to resolve its associated problems.

In this 2nd edition, the author extends the scope of the original book to include applications of calculus in the areas of arc-length parameterisation of curves, geometric continuity, tangent and normal vectors, and curvature. The author draws upon his experience in teaching to undergraduates to make calculus appear no more challenging than any other branch of . He introduces the subject by examining how depend upon their independent variables, and then derives the appropriate mathematical underpinning and definitions. This gives rise to a function’s derivative and its antiderivative, or integral. Using the idea of limits, the reader is introduced to derivatives and integrals of many common . Other chapters address higher-order derivatives, partial derivatives, Jacobians, vector-based , single, double and triple integrals, with numerous worked examples, and over a hundred and seventy colour illustrations.

This book complements the author’s other books on mathematics for computer graphics, and assumes that the reader is familiar with everyday algebra, trigonometry, vectors and determinants. After studying this book, the reader should understand calculus and its application within the world of computer graphics, and animation.
