**Quaternions, Interpolation and Animation**

by Erik B. Dam, Martin Koch, Martin Lillholm

**Publisher**: University of Copenhagen 1998**Number of pages**: 103

**Description**:

The main topics of this technical report are quaternions, their mathematical properties, and how they can be used to rotate objects. We introduce quaternion mathematics and discuss why quaternions are a better choice for implementing rotation than the well-known matrix implementations.
