Math Primer Series: Matrices I: Introduction and Basics Operations


Quote

Few things are as ubiquitous in game and graphics programming as a matrix. In this installment of the math primer, we take a look at these structures, investigating not only their numerical significance, but also what they represent visually. Next time, we’ll see how to combine them with vectors and with other matrices to form complex transformations, which we rely heavily on in game code.
