Old Wine in New Bottles: A New Algebraic Framework for Computational Geometry

  • David Hestenes


My purpose in this chapter is to introduce you to a powerful new algebraic model for Euclidean space with all sorts of applications to computer-aided geometry, robotics, computer vision and the like. A detailed description and analysis of the model is soon to be published elsewhere, so I can concentrate on highlights here, although with a slightly different formulation that I find more convenient for applications. Also, I can assume that this audience is familiar with Geometric Algebra, so we can proceed rapidly without belaboring the basics.
