The first volume, known as FGED1, provides a detailed introduction to the mathematics used by modern game engine programmers. The book covers the topics of linear algebra (vectors and matrices), transforms, and geometry in a conventional manner.
This is followed by an introduction to Grassmann algebra and geometric algebra, where a deeper understanding can be found along with explanations for why some pieces of the conventional mathematics aren’t quite right.
