Edifying The Young

Two elementary courses common to modern physics, mathematics, and engineering curricula are Linear Algebra and Vector Calculus. Geometric Algebra is a natural and powerful extension of linear algebra and Geometric Calculus is even more so for vector calculus.

In this post, I interview Dr. Alan Macdonald who talks about his experience with both subjects and how he contributes in educating young undergraduate students about them through his books and online videos.

Visualizing Scientific Insights

The area of Scientific Visualization (SciViz) is an interdisciplinary branch of science. According to Friendly, it is “primarily concerned with the visualization of three-dimensional phenomena (architectural, meteorological, medical, biological, etc.), where the emphasis is on realistic renderings of volumes, surfaces, illumination sources, and so forth, perhaps with a dynamic (time) component”. It is also considered a subset of computer graphics, a branch of computer science. The purpose of scientific visualization is to graphically illustrate scientific data to enable scientists to understand, illustrate, and glean insight from their data.
In this post, I interview Dr. Werner Benger who describes his views on SciViz using Geometric Algebra and provides valuable insights about the use of SciViz in Big Data applications.


Knowing About the World via GIS

In this post, I interview Dr. Yu Zhaoyuan who explains the importance of Geographical Information Science (GIS) and the potential of Geometric Algebra as a mathematical modeling tool in this fascinating field of study. Dr. Zhaoyuan talks about the deep relations between Geometric Computing and GIS. He then tells us about the difficulties facing the creation of good GIS simulators and how GA can help in this regard. Finally, he talks about the recent GAGIS conference and the important research presented there.
