Vector Math for 3D Computer Graphics
by Bradley Kjell
Publisher: Central Connecticut State University 2003
This is a tutorial on vector algebra and matrix algebra from the viewpoint of computer graphics. It covers most vector and matrix topics needed for college-level computer graphics text books. Most graphics texts cover these subjects in an appendix, but it is often too short. This tutorial covers the same material at greater length, and with many examples. This tutorial is useful for more than computer graphics. Vectors and matrices are used in all scientific and engineering fields, and any other field that uses computers. In many fields, the vocabulary used for vectors and matrices does not match that used in computer graphics. But the ideas are the same, and reading these notes will take only a slight mental adjustment.

This text assists undergraduates in mastering the mathematical language to address problems in the field's many applications. It consists of 4 units: counting and listing, functions, decision trees and recursion, and basic concepts of graph theory.
The aim of this text is to develop an informal, light introduction to the world of fractal geometry and to inspire further research into the subject, whether your interest is of a pure, applied or even recreational nature.

This introductory book emphasises algorithms and applications, such as cryptography and error correcting codes. It is accessible to a broad audience. Prerequisites are a typical undergraduate course in calculus and some experience in doing proofs.
The purpose of this book is to show how the computer can draw technically perfect pictures of Julia and Mandelbrot sets. All the necessary theory is explained and some words are said about how to put the things into a computer program.
