Transformations in the geom3d Package



A mapping of a set A onto a set B is one in which distinct elements of A have distinct images in B is called a transformation (or one-to-one mapping) of A onto B.


The following elementary transformations are implemented in the geom3d package:


Direct isometries: rotation, translation, ScrewDisplacement.


Opposite isometries: reflection, RotatoryReflection, GlideReflection.


non-isometric similarity: homothety, homology.


Others: inversion


Further information is available under geom3d[transform] where transform is one of the transformations from the above list.
