Recent developments in geometric algebra have shown that by moving from a projective to a conformal representation (5d representation of 3d space), one is able to extend the range of geometrical operations that can be carried out in an efficient and elegant way. For example, while in projective space one is able to intersect lines and planes in a simple fashion, in conformal space one is able to intersect and represent spheres, lines, circles and planes. In addition, all the operations of… Expand
