Quaternions, Interpolation and Animation
by

Publisher: University of Copenhagen
Number of pages: 103

Description:
The main topics of this technical report are quaternions, their mathematical properties, and how they can be used to rotate objects. We introduce quaternion mathematics and discuss why quaternions are a better choice for implementing rotation than the well-known matrix implementations.
