Basic Math for Game Development with Unity 3D

Use Unity-based examples to understand fundamental mathematical concepts and see how they are applied when building modern video game functionality. You will gain the theoretical foundation you need, and you will know how to examine and modify an implementation. This book covers points in a 3D Cartesian coordinate system, and then discusses vectors and the details of dot and cross products. Basic mathematical foundations are illustrated through Unity-based example implementations. Also provided are examples showing how the concepts are applied when implementing video game functionality, such as collision support, motion simulations, autonomous behaviors, shadow approximations, and reflection off arbitrary walls. Throughout this book, you learn and examine the concepts and their applications in a game engine. What You Will Learn Understand the basic concepts of points and vectors and their applications in game development Apply mathematical concepts to modern video game functionality, such as spherical and box colliders Implement autonomous behaviors, including following way points, facing a target, chasing an object, etc. Who This Book is For Beginners, and those interested in the implementation of interactive games, who need a basic mathematical background or a refresher with modern examples

Advanced Lighting and Materials with Shaders

The world around us is filled with subtle lighting effects, but until recently it was not possible to duplicate these real-world effects in computer games because of the limits of consumer graphics hardware. Advanced Lighting and Materials with Shaders explains the principles of lighting theory and discusses how to create realistic lighting that takes full advantage of the capabilities of modern hardware. Topics include the physics of light, raytracing and related techniques, objects and materials, lighting and reflectance models, implementing lights in shaders, spherical harmonic lighting, spherical harmonics in DirectX, and real-time radiosity.Upon reading this text, you will understand the underlying physics of light and energy; learn about the visual features of different materials and how they can be modeled for real-time graphics; find out about the different lighting models; discover how real-time techniques compare to ray tracing; learn to use the provided shader implementations to implement lights and realistic materials in real time.Accompanying CD-ROM includes all the code in the book with resources (models, textures, probes, etc.) needed to run the programs, along with the SDKs and libraries needed to build the programs and luminance Radiosity Studio, an advanced radiosity program.
