Summary: ''Game Physics, 2nd Edition'' provides clear descriptions of the mathematics and algorithms needed to create a powerful physics engine - while providing a solid reference for all of the math you will encounter anywhere in game development: quaternions, linear algebra, and calculus. Implementing physical simulations for real-time games is a complex task that requires a solid understanding of a wide range of concepts from the fields of mathematics and physics. Previously, the relevant
information could only be gleaned through obscure research papers. Thanks to ''Game Physics'', all this information is now available in a single, easily accessible volume. The new 2nd edition is the much-anticipated update that incorporates new info on how to implement a classic rigid-body physics engine, as well as new coverage of ragdoll physics, PLUS a new chapter on Physics Luminaries and their contributions (Ronald Fedkiw, Jos Stam, and James O'Brien). The CD will contain Wild Magic 5, a large software package for graphics, physics, and related topics. Also, Eberly's associated web site will support the book and CD: www.geometrictools.com. --Much-anticipated 2nd edition offers valuable new applications of particle systems, fluids, and gases. --CD with Wild Magic physics engine, C++ source code that supports the simulations in the book, plus sample apps, and exercises. --Books tackles the complex, challenging issues that other books avoid - and provides a solid, comprehensive math resource for game developers.
