As gamers and gaming platforms continue to evolve and diversify, so has the complexity and variety of problems facing the modern game programmer. Creating the latest code for graphics, gameplay, animation, physical simulation, artificial intelligence, and procedural generation requires thorough knowledge of the necessary mathematical underpinnings.
This tutorial continues the tradition of the "Math for Programmers" tutorial by presenting talks on a wide variety of subjects, including: biased randomness, navmesh generation, floating point error, procedural generation, and wave function collapse, as well as a deeper dive into intuiting splines, dot and cross products, and quaternions.
