Product description


Praise for Previous Editions:
"It’s the book with all the math you need for games."
―Neil Kirby, Researcher, Alcatel-Lucent

"Even though I’ve worked with these systems for years, this book showed me new ways of looking at several topics that make them easier to remember and use. For someone new to 3D programming, it is extremely useful―it gives them a solid background in pretty much every area they need to understand."
―Peter Lipson, Toys for Bob, Inc.
