Geometric algebra has established itself as a powerful and valuable
mathematical tool for solving problems in computer science,
engineering, physics, and mathematics. The articles in this volume,
written by experts in various fields, reflect an interdisciplinary
approach to the subject, and highlight a range of techniques and
applications. Relevant ideas are introduced in a self-contained manner
and only a knowledge of linear algebra and calculus is assumed.
Features and Topics:
* The mathematical foundations of geometric algebra are explored
* Applications in computational geometry include models of reflection
and ray-tracing and a new and concise characterization of the
* Applications in engineering include robotics, image geometry,
control-pose estimation, inverse kinematics and dynamics, control and
* Applications in physics include rigid-body dynamics, elasticity, and
* Chapters dedicated to quantum information theory dealing with multi-
particle entanglement, MRI, and relativistic generalizations
Practitioners, professionals, and researchers working in computer
