Rotations of Vectors Via Geometric Algebra
by James A. Smith
Publisher: viXra 2016
Number of pages: 76
This document begins with a review of the geometry of angles and circles, then treats rotations in plane geometry before showing how to formulate problems in GA terms, then solve the resulting equations. The six problems treated in the document, most of which are solved in more than one way, include the special cases that Viete used to solve the general Problem of Apollonius.

This book is written for Science students. The necessity of accurate draughtsmanship is insisted on throughout. We describe how the drawing instruments may be set and maintained. And the numerical answers are appended to many of the examples.

Mathematical billiards describe the motion of a mass point in a domain with elastic reflections from the boundary. Billiards is not a single mathematical theory, it is rather a mathematician’s playground where various methods are tested.
