Students studying computer animation and computer games have to be familiar with geometry, matrices, vectors, rotation transforms, quaternions, curves and surfaces, and as computer graphics software becomes increasingly sophisticated, calculus is also being used to resolve its associated problems. The author draws upon his experience in teaching mathematics to undergraduates to make calculus appear no more challenging than any other branch of mathematics. He introduces the subject by examining how functions depend upon their independent variables, and then derives the appropriate mathematical underpinning and definitions. This gives rise to a function’s derivative and its antiderivative, or integral. Using the idea of limits, the reader is introduced to derivatives and integrals of many common functions. Other chapters address higher-order derivatives, partial derivatives, Jacobians, vector-based functions, single, double and triple integrals, with numerous worked examples, and over a hundred illustrations. Calculus for Computer Graphics complements the author’s other books on mathematics for computer graphics, and assumes that the reader is familiar with everyday algebra, trigonometry, vectors and determinants. After studying this book, the reader should understand calculus and its application within the world of computer games and animation.
Six mathematical forces are at the heart of shaping your personality. Dr Alan Graham explains their importance, their history, how they impact your life, and how you can make them work for you.
Outline Course of Pure Mathematics presents a unified treatment of the algebra, geometry, and calculus that are considered fundamental for the foundation of undergraduate mathematics. This book discusses several topics, including elementary treatments of the real number system, simple harmonic motion, Hooke's law, parabolic motion under gravity, sequences and series, polynomials, binomial theorem, and theory of probability. Organized into 23 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the fundamental concepts of differential and integral calculus, which are complementary processes for solving problems of the physical world. This text then explains the concept of the inverse of a function that is a natural complement of the function concept and introduces a convenient notation. Other chapters illustrate the concepts of continuity and discontinuity at the origin. This book discusses as well the significance of logarithm and exponential functions in scientific and technological contexts. This book is a valuable resource for undergraduates and advanced secondary school students.
Teach Yourself Calculus gives a comprehensive coverage of the subject and is suitable for those studying pure and applied mathematics, engineering and allied sciences. It gives you the essential mathematical background to understand and apply the calculus required in these areas. Ideal for beginners, Teach Yourself Calculus provides a carefully graded series of lessons which introduce the basic concepts of differentiation and integration. Each chapter includes many clearly worked examples, diagrams and exercises with full answers.
