Note: | The author defines Geometric Algebra Computing as the geometrically intuitive development of algorithms using geometric algebra with a focus on their efficient implementation, and the goal of this book is to lay thefoundations for the widespread use of geometric algebra as a powerful, intuitive mathematical language for engineering applications in academia and industry. The related technology is driven by the invention of conformal geometricalgebra as a 5D extension of the 4D projective geometric alg ebra and by the recent progress in parallel processing, and with the specific conformal geometric algebra there is a growing community in recent years applying geometricalgebra to applications in computer vision, computer graphics, and robotics. This book is organized into three parts: in Part I the author focuses on the mathematical foundations in Part II he explains the interactive handling ofgeometric algebra and in Part III he deals with computing technology for high-performance implementations based on geometric algebra as a domain-specific language in standard programming languages such as C++ and OpenCL. The book iswritten in a tutorial style and readers should gain experience with the associated freely available software packages and applications. The book is suitable for students, engineers, and researchers in computer science, computationalengineering, and mathematics |
