Color Cube Meets Rubik’s Cube

I have made a half dozen blog posts about Rubik's Cube so far this year. And, during the MATLAB Central Mini Hack in October, I resurrected an old code about the Color Cube. Now, a combination of the two, Rubik/Color Qube, creates an elegant tool for investigating Matrices in Action.... 更多内容 >>

Christian Reinsch, Roland Bulirsch, and the SVD 2

Christian Reinsch and Roland Bulirsch both passed away recently, Reinsch on October 8 and Bulirsch on September 21. Reinsch was 88 years old and Bulirsch was 89. Both of them were retired professors of numerical analysis at the Technical University of Munich. Both of them were friends of mine. But in almost all other ways, they were very different people.... 更多内容 >>

An Interactive Version of colorcubes

A 231-character static version of colorcubes in the current MiniHack generated quite a bit of interest. So I am posting the full version, where you can change number of cubes and the view point, at this link.... 更多内容 >>

Rotation Matrices 3

The matrices in the following animations are at the heart of computer graphics. They describe objects moving in three-dimensional space and are essential to MATLAB's Handle Graphics, to Computer Added Design packages, to Computer Graphics Imagery in films, and to most popular video games. Many modern computers contain GPUs, Graphic Processing Units, which are optimized to compute the product of these matrices.... 更多内容 >>
