A) Is this a linear transformation? Why or why not? (b) Express this afﬁne transformation in the form x → Mx + u by explicitly giving M and u. A rotation is a transformation that rotates the points in R2 by a ﬁxed angle around the origin. 5 shows the effect of a rotation of θ degrees in the counterclockwise (CCW) direction. 5, the images of i and j under a rotation of θ degrees are cos θ, sin θ and −sin θ, cos θ . Therefore, a counterclockwise rotation through an angle θ is represented by the matrix Rθ = cos θ −sin θ .

6 This is not a complete list of the axioms for projective geometry. For instance, it is required that every line have at least three points, and so on. 1 Transformations in 2-Space 33 The intuitive idea of projective plane construction is as follows: for each family of parallel lines in R2 , we create a new point, called a point at inﬁnity. This new point is added to each of these parallel lines. In addition, we add one new line: the line at inﬁnity, which contains exactly all the new points at inﬁnity.

5 for more on projective geometry). A transformation on R3 is any mapping from R3 to R3 . The deﬁnition of a linear transformation on R3 is identical to the deﬁnition used for R2 except that now the vectors x and y range over R3 . Similarly, the deﬁnitions of translation and of afﬁne transformation are word-for-word identical to the deﬁnitions given for R2 except that now the translation vector u is in R3 . In particular, an afﬁne transformation is still deﬁned as the composition of a translation and a linear transformation.
