Greetings !(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can anyone please explain to me, preferably with as

little math and as much theory as possible , how

matrices work in terms of forms and dimensions and what's

the relevant mechanism ?

I mean, I used to program Star Trek spaceships for a computer

game I once made using matrices. But, nobody ever explained

to me how and why it works, those were just meaningless tables

with sprecific relevant operators to me. I also know the

whole addition/multiplication/other operations stuff(though

I can hardly remember it now), but not how and why it works for geometrical forms in various dimensions and stuff.

Thanks !

Live long and prosper.
