Autumn Quarter, 2001

Marc Levoy

Lecture notes for Thursday, October 25

- 2D transformations
- Column versus row spaces
- Homogeneous coordinates
- Homogeneous representation of 2D transformations
- Composition of 2D transformations
- Modeling hierarchies

These unit vectors are also called the standard basis vectors. Restating the result shown above, any matrix transforms the standard basis vectors into a set of vectors that form the columns of the matrix.

In other words, an orthogonal matrix transforms its rows, taken as column vectors, into the standard basis vectors.

Thus, the 2D Cartesian coordinates occupy the W = 1 plane in 3D homogeneous space.

I'll cover this last page in class next Tuesday, Oct. 30.
