3D GAME MATH PRIMER 3: WHAT ARE VECTORS ANYWAY?

Well what are vectors anyway? The topic of vectors crop up in geometry, physics, engineering disciplines, mechanics, etc. How they are used, as well as their definitions at times, vary from context to context. Below I have listed how vectors are defined in some contexts: 1. In geometry, Euclidian (or spatial) vectors are line segments that represent… Read More 3D GAME MATH PRIMER 3: WHAT ARE VECTORS ANYWAY?

THE ROLE OF MATHEMATICS IN 3D GAME PROGRAMMING

Many a time I’ve heard statements like “Games programming? 3D graphics? that requires an awful lot of maths right? and graduate level math at that…” ….and therein onwards the interest dies off due to the pre-mis-conceptions about the role that mathematics will play in games development. For a programmer/developer/software engineer, learning the concepts of 3D mathematics needed… Read More THE ROLE OF MATHEMATICS IN 3D GAME PROGRAMMING
