Transformations in the geom3d Package

Description

• 

A mapping of a set A onto a set B is one in which distinct elements of A have distinct images in B is called a transformation (or one-to-one mapping) of A onto B.

• 

The following elementary transformations are implemented in the geom3d package:

• 

Direct isometries: rotation, translation, ScrewDisplacement.

• 

Opposite isometries: reflection, RotatoryReflection, GlideReflection.

• 

non-isometric similarity: homothety, homology.

• 

Others: inversion

• 

Further information is available under geom3d[transform] where transform is one of the transformations from the above list.
