  • ''Accurate and effective collision detection in complicated environments is among the foundations of state-of-the-art state-of-the-art machine video games. but collision detection is notoriously tough to enforce robustly and takes up an more and more huge fraction of compute cycles in present online game engines as more and more unique environments have gotten the norm. Real-time Collision Detection is a finished reference in this subject, overlaying it with either breadth and intensity. not just are the basic algorithms defined basically and intimately, yet Ericson's ebook covers an important implementation matters, together with geometric and numeric robustness and cache-efficient implementations of the algorithms. jointly, those make this publication a 'must have' functional reference for a person attracted to constructing interactive functions with advanced environments.'' —Matt Pharr, NVIDIA ''Christer Ericson's Real-time Collision Detection is a wonderful source that covers the basics in addition to a huge array of strategies acceptable to online game development.'' —Jay Stelly, Valve ''Christer Ericson presents a realistic and extremely available remedy of real-time collision detection. This features a complete set of C++ implementations of a truly huge variety of exercises essential to construct such purposes in a context that's a lot broader than simply online game programming. The courses are well-thought out and the accompanying dialogue unearths a deep figuring out of the photos, algorithms, and simplicity of implementation concerns. it is going to discover a welcome domestic on any images programmer's bookshelf even though it will probably no longer remain there lengthy as others may be consistently borrowing it....'' —Hanan Samet, college of Maryland ''Real-Time Collision Detection is a superb source that each severe engine programmer must have on his bookshelf. Christer Ericson covers a magnificent variety of ideas and offers them utilizing concise arithmetic, insightful figures, and useful code.'' —Eric Lengyel, Senior Programmer, Naughty puppy ''If you think that you know every little thing approximately collision detection, you are in for a shock! This ebook not just does a very good task at featuring the entire collision detection equipment identified up to now, it additionally is going manner past the normal fabric due to a plethora of juicy, down-to-earth, hard-learned implementation suggestions and methods. This produces an ideal combination among concept and perform, illustrated through the correct quantity of resource code in acceptable areas. primarily the e-book simply oozes with adventure. Christer does not overlook all of the replacement issues that, regardless of indirectly relating to collision detection, can smash your implementation should you do not contain them on your layout. The chapters on robustness and optimization are precious during this appreciate. Its conscientiously crafted compact kd-tree implementation fantastically concludes a special booklet filled with luminous gems.'' —Pierre Terdiman, relevant software program engineer, NovodeX AG, and author of the preferred collision detection library Opcode ''When I bought a duplicate of Real-Time Collision Detection for evaluate, i used to be in the course of remodeling an architectural visualization and lighting fixtures layout software. The Bounding quantity Hierarchies bankruptcy allowed me to fast and simply layout and enforce a good ray tracing acceleration scheme. It additionally supplied me with a wealth of knowledge on a number of layout thoughts, which gave me the arrogance that I had selected a near-optimal procedure. What one among my consumers lately acknowledged in regards to the accomplished software program displays my opinion of this really good e-book: 'Holy cow! very good work!''' —Ian Ashdown, byHeart experts restricted

Example text

Geometrically, the dot product can be seen as the projection of v onto u, returning the signed distance d of v along u in units of u : d= u·v . 5a. Given vectors u and v, v can therefore be decomposed into a vector p parallel to u and a vector q perpendicular to u, such that v = p + q: u·v u·v u·v u u= u, and = 2 u u u·u u u·v q=v−p=v− u. 5b shows how v is decomposed into p and q. Note that because the dot product is commutative the same holds true for seeing it as the projection of u onto v, returning the distance of u along v in units of v .

B) Alternatively, by the parallelogram law, the vector sum can be seen as the diagonal of the parallelogram formed by the two vectors. 1 Vector Arithmetic The sum w of two vectors u and v, w = u + v, is formed by pairwise adding the components of u and v: w = u + v = (u1 , u2 , . . , un ) + (v1 , v2 , . . , vn ) = (u1 + v1 , u2 + v2 , . . , un + vn ). Geometrically, the vector sum can be seen as placing the arrow for v at the tip of u and defining their sum as the arrow pointing from the start of u to the tip of v.

B) The negation of vector v. (c) The vector v scaled by a factor of 2. When the scalar k is negative, w has a direction opposite that of v. The length of a vector v is denoted by v and is defined in terms of its components as v = (v12 + v22 + · · · + vn2 ). The length of a vector is also called its norm or magnitude. A vector with a magnitude of 1 is called a unit vector. A nonzero vector v can be made unit, or be normalized, by multiplying it with the scalar 1/ v . For any n-dimensional vector space (specifically Rn ) there exists a basis consisting of exactly n linearly independent vectors e1 , e2 , .
