Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Quaternions for Computer Graphics.5/5(4). With quaternions this sequential process is not necessary. Why use Quaternions to rotate a 3D character when matrices can do the same job? There are two reasons why Quaternions are preferred in computer graphics: Matrix rotations suffer from what is known as Gimbal Lock. Quaternions consume less memory and are faster to compute than matrices. Quaternions for Computer Graphics book. Read 2 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Sir William Rowan Hamilton was a genius, and will 4/5. Quaternions for Computer Graphics introduces the reader to quaternion algebra by describing concepts of sets, groups, fields and rings. It also includes chapters on imaginary quantities, complex numbers and the complex plane, which are essential to understanding quaternions. The book contains many illustrations and worked examples, which make 5/5(3).

The book includes introductory chapters on complex numbers, matrices, quaternions and geometric algebra, and further chapters on how these techniques are employed in 2D and 3D computer graphics. In particular, matrix and bivector transforms are developed and evaluated to rotate points in a fixed frame of reference, and vice : John Vince.
