A face-to-face Mathematica consultant wanted

Post by ragh » Thu, 18 Sep 2003 21:17:35


Hi:

I am beginning to use Mathematica (Version 5 on Windows XP).
I would like to ask some questions on loading and
running specific third party programs (involving symmetry
analysis of differential equations). Also, I would like
some pointers on programming with Mathematica. I do not intend
to take a course in Mathematica, and asking for support
via email is less efficient than a direct meeting.
I am happy to pay a consultant to
ask questions of as I need to know them.
I live in Baltimore, MD and if anyone has a
suggestion for a knowledgeable consultant in
the area, I would be grateful. Please reply directly to me.

Thanks,
Raghu Raghavan.
 
 
 

1. Face it: Facebook loses face as the face as microsoft spaces gazes at strange faces

2. Determining whether a polygon face is front-facing or back-facing.

I asked my students to write a note on how OpenGL determines whether
front- and back-facing. Essentially, Iwas inviting them to elaborate
on the following from my notes -- in turn copied from the Red Book:

"
Front- or back-facing depends on the sign of the polygon's area
computed in window coordinates. We can compute this area as:

a = \frac{1}{2} \sum_{i=0}^{n-1} x_i y_{i \oplus 1} - x_{i \oplus 1}
y_{i},

where $i \oplus 1 = (i+1) \mod n$ and where $x_i$ and $y_i$ are the
\emph{window} coordinates of the $i$th vertex of the $n$ vertex
polygon. $i \oplus 1 = (i+1) \mod n$ simply wraps around back to zero
at $i=n$, i.e. there is no $i=n$, so we go back to the first (zeroth
index) point.

If \verb|GL_CCW| has been specified, if $a>0$, the polygon is
considered to be front-facing; otherwise, it is back-facing.
"

Mostly, they gave answers based on the sign of the scalar product of
the viewing point and the normal to the face. Which seems reasonable;
unless OpenGL actually uses the former, and the former is easier to
compute.

Any suggestions?

TIA,

Jon C.
