Geometric Algebra in 3D – Fundamentals

In this video, we set up the geometric algebra of three dimensions, called G(3). We will see that the introduction of a third basis vector adds two extra bivectors and a trivector to our basis for G(3) compared to G(2). We’ll see that geometric interpretations and computations are analogous to G(2) and the new mathematical object, the trivector, is to be interpreted as a directed volume element, also called the pseudoscalar in G(3).
