practitioners have a good grasp of the 3D Cartesian space However, in many graphics applications, orientations and rotations are equally important, and the concepts and tools related to rotations are less well known.Quaternions are the key tool for understanding and manipulating orientations and rotations, and this book does a masterful job of making quaternions accessible It excels not only in its scholarship, but also provides enough detailed figures and examples to expose the subtleties encountered when using quaternions This is a book our field has needed for twenty years and I m thrilled it is finally here Peter Shirley, Professor, University of Utah This book contains all that you would want to know about quaternions, including a great many things that you don t yet realize that you want to know Alyn Rockwood, Vice President, ACM SIGGRAPH We need to use quaternions any time we have to interpolate orientations, for animating a camera move, simulating a rollercoaster ride, indicating fluid vorticity or displaying a folded protein, and it s all too easy to do it wrong This book presents gently but deeply the relationship between orientations in 3D and the differential geometry of the three sphere in 4D that we all need to understand to be proficient in modern science and engineering, and especially computer graphics John C Hart, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, and Editor in Chief, ACM Transactions on Graphics Visualizing Quaternions is a comprehensive, yet superbly readable introduction to the concepts, mechanics, geometry, and graphical applications of Hamilton s lasting contribution to the mathematical description of the real world To write effectively on this subject, an author has to be a mathematician, physicist and computer scientist Hanson is all three.Still, the reader can afford to be much less learned since the patient and detailed explanations makes this book an easy read George K Francis, Professor, Mathematics Department, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign The new book, Visualizing Quaternions, will be welcomed by the many fans of Andy Hanson s SIGGRAPH course Anselmo Lastra, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Andy Hanson s expository yet scholarly book is a stunning tour de force it is both long overdue, and a splendid surprise Quaternions have been a perennial source of confusion for the computer graphics community, which sorely needs this book His enthusiasm for and deep knowledge of the subject shines through his exceptionally clear prose, as he weaves together a story encompassing branches of mathematics from group theory to differential geometry to Fourier analysis Hanson leads the reader through the thicket of interlocking mathematical frameworks using visualization as the path, providing geometric interpretations of quaternion properties.The first part of the book features a lucid explanation of how quaternions work that is suitable for a broad audience, covering such fundamental application areas as handling camera trajectories or the rolling ball interaction model The middle section will inform even a mathematically sophisticated audience, with careful development of the subtle implications of quaternions that have often been misunderstood, and presentation of less obvious quaternion applications such as visualizing vector field streamlines or the motion envelope of the human shoulder joint The book concludes with a bridge to the mathematics of higher dimensional analogues to quaternions, namely octonians and Clifford algebra, that is designed to be accessible to computer scientists as well as mathematicians Tamara Munzner, University of British ColumbiaIntroduced 160 years ago as an attempt to generalize complex numbers to higher dimensions, quaternions are now recognized as one of the most important concepts in modern computer graphics They offer a powerful way to represent rotations and compared to rotation matrices they use less memory, compose faster, and are naturally suited for efficient interpolation of rotations Despite this, many practitioners have avoided quaternions because of the mathematics used to understand them, hoping that some day a intuitive description will be available.The wait is over Andrew Hanson s new book is a fresh perspective on quaternions The first part of the book focuses on visualizing quaternions to provide the intuition necessary to use them, and includes many illustrative examples to motivate why they are important a beautiful introduction to those wanting to explore quaternions unencumbered by their mathematical aspects The second part covers the all important advanced applications, including quaternion curves, surfaces, and volumes Finally, for those wanting the full story of the mathematics behind quaternions, there is a gentle introduction to their four dimensional nature and to Clifford Algebras, the all encompassing framework for vectors and quaternions Richly illustrated introduction for the developer, scientist, engineer, or student in computer graphics, visualization, or entertainment
