It is a nice introduction to Geometric Algebra for anyone, not just computer graphics programmers. It shows clearly, that Geometric Algebra is a better alternative to Vector Algebra, which is the mainstream method of dealing with 2 and 3 dimensional geometry. Geometric Algebra is a far more logical way to deal with geometry than vector by: Geometric algebra is a consistent computational framework for geometric programming.

It has new, geometrically meaningful products to calculate directly with the subspaces of a vector space. This capability considerably reinforces and extends the linear algebra techniques traditionally used in computer graphics and robotics.

Geometric algebra and its extension to geometric calculus simplify, unify, and generalize vast areas of mathematics that involve geometric ideas.

Geometric algebra is an extension of linear algebra. The treatment of many linear algebra topics is enhanced by geometric algebra, for example, determinants and orthogonal transformations. The title does no justice to this book. It is a nice introduction to Geometric Algebra for anyone, not just computer graphics programmers.

It shows clearly, that Geometric Algebra is a better alternative to Vector Algebra, which is the mainstream method of dealing with 2 and 3 dimensional geometry/5(2).
