Improving FloatingPoint Precision in C#
—
This tutorial continues the journey to understand floatingpoint arithmetic, and how to improve the precision of modern programming language types. At the end of this article, you will find a link to download a simple C# library that provides a new type which improves the precision of traditional float and double variables.

An Introduction to FloatingPoint Arithmetic
This tutorial will introduce you to floatingpoint arithmetic, and how many modern languages—C# included—represent real numbers. This is a series in two parts: At the end of this article, you will find a link to download a simple C# library that provides a new type which improves the precision of traditional float and double variables.

Inverse Kinematics for Robotic Arms
After a long journey about the Mathematics of Forward Kinematics and the geometrical details of gradient descent, we are ready to finally show a working implementation for the problem of inverse kinematics. This tutorial will show how it can be applied to a robotic arm, like the one in the image below. The other post in this series can…

Implementing Forward Kinematics
This tutorial continues our quest to solve the problem of forward kinematics. After exploring a mathematical solution in The Mathematics of Forward Kinematics, we will see how to translate it into C# for Unity. The next tutorial, An Introduction to Gradient Descent, will finally show the theoretical foundations to solve inverse kinematics. The other post in this series can be found…

The Mathematics of Forward Kinematics
This tutorial starts our journey into the world of inverse kinematics. There are countless ways to approach this problem, but they all starts with forward kinematics. Inverse kinematics takes a point in space, and tells you how to move your arm to reach it. Forward kinematics solves the opposite, dual problem. Knowing how you are moving your arm, it…
