An Algebraic Equation for the Central Projection
Institut for Mathematics, University of Innsbruck, Technikerstr. 25, A 6020 Innsbruck, Austria, firstname.lastname@example.org
A necessary and sufficient condition for a central-axonometric reference system to be the image of a positively oriented orthonormal frame under a central projection is given by a single complex equation. The presented equation is an analogon of the Gauss equation that characterizes the reference system of an orthogonal axonometry.
Keywords: central projection, central axonometry, Gauss equation.
