CHAPTER 12 — Vector Cross Product
The cross product is another operation
that takes two vectors as operands.
The most important use of the cross product in
computer graphics is to find a vector perpendicular
to a plane.
- Cross product definition.
- The right hand rule.
- Cross product properties.
- Computing the cross product with column matrices.
- Determinant-like memory aid.
(Review: ) How many vectors are needed to define a plane?
