Programming for special effects calls for a good number of easy geometric operations. the obvious solution to software those is usually inefficient or numerical risky. This publication describes the easiest methods to those straightforward systems, supplying the programmer with geometric recommendations in a sort that may be without delay integrated into this system being written. it really is without delay appropriate to special effects, but additionally to different programming initiatives the place geometric operations are required
