What exactly do “left-handed” and “right-handed” mean? First, let’s look at a simple and intuitive way to identify the handedness of a particular coordinate system. The easiest and most illustrative way to identify the handedness of a particular coordinate system is to use, well, your hands! With your left hand, make an “L” with your thumb and index finger. ) Your thumb should be pointing to your right, and your index finger should be pointing up. Now extend your third finger so it points directly forward.

Vectors are also frequently written vertically: A vector written vertically is a column vector. In this book, we will use both notations. For now, the distinction between row and column vectors won’t matter. 8 we will discuss why, in certain circumstances, the distinction is critical. When we wish to refer to the individual components in a vector, we use subscript notation. In math literature, integer indices are used to access the elements. For example, v1 refers to the first element in v. However, since we are specifically interested in 2D, 3D, and 4D vectors, rather than vectors of arbitrary dimension n, we will rarely use this notation.

For 26 Chapter 3: Multiple Coordinate Spaces example, if we wanted to render a view of Cartesia, for all practical purposes Cartesia would be “the world,” since we wouldn’t care where Cartesia is located (or even if it exists at all). 1 we will discuss how “absolute position” is technically undefined. ” The world coordinate space is also known for obvious reasons as the global or universal coordinate space. Some examples of questions that are typically asked in world space include questions about initial conditions and the environment, such as: n What is the position and orientation of each object?
