It should also be noted here that such a computation may not always yield a minimal bounding volume. For example, the bounding sphere computed as the union of two bounding spheres may not necessarily be the minimal bounding sphere for the union of points within those spheres. A two-dimensional equivalent of this case is shown in Fig. 15, using bounding circles of two objects. We discuss below the process of updating the bounding volume parameters (using AABBs and spheres as examples) at a group node based on the updated parameters of its child nodes.

The documentation of these classes can be found in Appendix A. 2. cpp The Triangle class provides methods for computing area, surface normal vector, and the barycentric coordinates of a point with respect to a triangle. It also has functions for performing the point inclusion test and bilinear interpolation. The documentation of this class can be found in Appendix A. 3. cpp The Matrix class contains methods for matrix operations (using 4 4 matrices) such as addition, multiplication, computation of transpose and inverse 28 2 Mathematical Preliminaries matrices, and transformation of points.

41 gives an affine combination of points. Additionally, if wi 0, for all i, then wi ’s form a partition of unity, and Eq. 41 is said to give a convex combination of points. 43) An interesting variation of the above equation can be derived by expressing the parameter t as a function of an angle ’, given by t D cos2 ’. Then the coefficient (1 t) becomes sin2 ’, and Eq. 43 takes the form Q D sin2 ’ P1 C cos2 ’ P2 . However, this trigonometric interpolation formula gives a non-uniform distribution of points on the line when ’ is varied from 0ı to 90ı in equal steps.
