Abstract:


    Prerequisites
    Attendees should be comfortable with and have an 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 people who wish to deepen their intuitive understanding of moving coordinate frames and quaternion-based animation techniques.

    Intended Audience
    Students, scientists, and practitioners whose work and/or interests involve 3D orientation frames.

    Description
    This tutorial exposes the fundamental features of quaternions as they apply to all fields of computer graphics and visualization by using visual representations of quaternions themselves to provide intuition and insight.
