<p>The implementation and use of computer graphics and modeling systems rely upon mathematical operations on points and vectors. Many of these operations are a part of the internal graphics system; others are application-specific and required by users of such systems to derive geometric entities for the application. This tutorial reviews the basic ideas surrounding points and vectors in affine and projective spaces. I advocate using vector geometric analysis to simplify required derivations and implementations.</p> <p>A companion article in the July/August 1999 IEEE CG&A builds on this background and shows several specific applications of these techniques.</p>
