The book initially examines the history and content of geometry before discussing the theory of transformations and vector spaces. It then examines the synthetic and analytic modes of expressing transformations before beginning analytical studies. Affine transformations are then covered including rigid-body transformations, homogeneous coordinates, transformation matrices, reflections, and dilations (including isotropic varieties and shear.
He gives understandable interpretations of how matrices are used to represent different types of transformations. The underlying geometrical rationale is clear.
Mortenson is a graduate of the UCLA School of Engineering. He gives understandable interpretations of how matrices are used to represent different types of transformations. En route, the reader is gently introduced to group theory.

It describes and compares all the important mathematical methods for modeling curves, surfaces, and solids, and shows how to transform and assemble these elements into complex models. Written in a style free of the jargon of special applications, this unique book focuses on the essence of geometric modeling and treats it as a discipline in its own right.
Describes how geometric objects may change position, orientation, or even shape when subjected to mathematical operations, while properties characterizing their geometric identity and integrity remain unchanged. Presents eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and tensors in a way that makes it easier for readers to understand.

A geometric transformation is any bijection of a set having some geometric structure to itself or another such set. Specifically, "A geometric transformation is a function whose domain and range are sets of points. Most often the domain and range of a geometric transformation are both R2 or both R3. Often, geometric transformations are required to be 1-1 functions, so that they have inverses. The study of geometry may be approached via the study of these transformations.
MICHAEL E. MORTENSON writes and consults in geometric modeling and CAD/CAM.
