Game Programming Simulation
Physics and mathematics concepts that are useful for simulating real-world objects are examined. Besides such standard physics topics as force, acceleration and friction, game programming topics such as collision detection and terrain traversal are discussed. Artificial intelligence concepts are also introduced.
1 credit in the CPA program.
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:
- Design and code programs that simulate the motion of simple three-dimensional objects, including small particles and rigid bodies of finite size.
- Design and code programs that simulate frictional contact and collisions of varying degrees of elasticity between three-dimensional objects of finite size.
- Explain the physical and mathematical concepts implemented in C++ code that models the motion and interaction of simple objects.
- Explain the approximate methods commonly used to detect a point of collision between two objects and identify C++ code that implements these methods.
- Identify in a C++ program potential sources of numerical error that may distort the motion of an object and propose refinements that minimize such distortions.
- Identify terms and language commonly used in the field of artificial intelligence.
- Explain how information can be used to guide a search.
- Design and code programs that will make decisions on what to do based on current conditions.
