3. Course contents *

Development of a useful geometric calculus, where points, straight lines, planes... are dealt with in a single algebraic frame ("Exterior Algebra"). The benefits of this theory are demonstrated on the basis of mechanical applications, such as "Robot Kinematics".

Part II deals with geometric transformations and the relevant invariants. Applications in computer vision are considered.
