Vectors play a crucial role in computer graphics, collision detection, and physical simulation, all of which are common components in modern video games. Our approach here is informal and practical; for a book dedicated to 3D game/graphics math, we recommend [Verth04]. We emphasize the importance of vectors by noting that they are used in just about every demo program in this book.
To learn how vectors are represented geometrically and numerically.
To discover the operations defined on vectors and their ...
