Linear Algebra IV - Primitive Shapes in Houdini Vex

This is a continuation of my Linear Algebra series in which I break down how to generate some Islamic Art inspired patterns using Matrices and Vectors. In the previous post I showed how these patterns can be generated easily in Python using Numpy and Matplotlib. I created an initial displacement vector which was then rotated […]

Linear Algebra I - Al-Jabr

First up on my hit list is Linear Algebra -  the prerequisite for any serious numerical work. This tool-set enables the manipulation of huge multi dimensional data-sets with simple scalable algorithms and numerical constructs . Any work involving computers is heavily dependent on these principles. The name is exact in its description, the phrase "Linear" signifies the […]
