The EJS adaptation of An Introduction to Computer Simulation Methods Chapter 17 studies affine transformations in order to visualize objects in three dimensions. We then solve Euler's equation of motion for rigid body dynamics using the quaternion representation of rotations.

Please note that this resource requires
at least version 1.5 of
Java (JRE).
