20. Visualizing Quaternions
Tutorial, 3:15 - 5:30 pm
The fundamental features of quaternions as they apply to all fields of computer graphics and visualization. The courses uses visual representations of quaternions themselves to provide intuition and insight.
PrerequisitesUnderstanding of and appreciation for conventional mathematical methods of 3D computer graphics and geometry used in geometric transformations and polygon rendering. The course will be of most interest to those who want to deepen their intuitive understanding of moving coordinate frames and quaternion-based animation techniques.
Intended AudienceStudents, scientists, and practitioners whose work and/or interests involve 3D orientation frames.
