2-dimensional vector type, including basic mathematical/geometrical operations and transformations, allowing for points in 2d space, and higher level types composed of them (*e.g.* `Path2.t`

and `Poly2.t`

) to be manipulated.

`type t = v2`

`val v : float -> float -> t`

`v x y`

Construct a vector from `x`

and `y`

coordinates.

`val of_tup : (float * float) -> t`

`of_tup (x, y)`

Construct a vector from a tuple of xy coordinates.

`val to_tup : t -> float * float`

`to_tup t`

Convert the vector `t`

to a tuple of xy coordinates.

`val zero : t`

Zero vector

`approx ?eps a b`

Returns true if the distance between vectors `a`

and `b`

is less than or equal to the epsilon `eps`

.

`horizontal_op f a b`

Hadamard (element-wise) operation between vectors `a`

and `b`

using the function `f`

.

`val norm : t -> float`

`norm t`

Calculate the vector norm (a.k.a. magnitude) of `t`

.

`distance a b`

Calculate the magnitude of the difference (Hadamard subtraction) between `a`

and `b`

.

`normalize t`

Normalize `t`

to a vector for which the magnitude is equal to 1. e.g. `norm (normalize t) = 1.`

`cross a b`

Vector cross product of `a`

and `b`

. In the case of 2d vectors, the cross product is performed with an assumed z = 0.

`angle_points a b c`

Calculate the angle between the points `a`

, `b`

, and `c`

.

`val ccw_theta : t -> float`

`ccw_theta t`

Calculate the angle in radians counter-clockwise `t`

is from the positive x-axis along the xy plane.

`vector_axis a b`

Compute the vector perpendicular to the vectors `a`

and `b`

.

`clockwise_sign ?eps a b c`

Returns the rotational ordering (around the z-axis, from the perspective of the origin, looking "up" the z-axis) of the points `a`

, `b`

, and `c`

as a signed float, `1.`

for clockwise, and `-1.`

for counter-clockwise. If the points are collinear (not forming a valid triangle, within the tolerance of `eps`

), `0.`

is returned.

`collinear p1 p2 p3`

Returns `true`

if `p2`

lies on the line between `p1`

and `p3`

.

`lerpn a b n`

Linearly interpolate `n`

vectors between vectors `a`

and `b`

. If `endpoint`

is `true`

, the last vector will be equal to `b`

, otherwise, it will be about `a + (b - a) * (1 - 1 / n)`

.

`distance_to_vector p v`

Distance from point `p`

to the line passing through the origin with unit direction `v`

.

`distance_to_line ?bounds ~line t`

Distance between the vector `t`

, and any point on `line`

. `bounds`

indicates whether each end `{a; b}`

of `line`

is bounded, or a ray (default = `(false, false)`

, indicating an infinite line in both directions.).

`point_on_line ?eps ?bounds ~line t`

Return `true`

if the point `t`

falls within `eps`

distance of the `line`

. `bounds`

indicates whether each end `{a; b}`

of `line`

is bounded, or a ray (default = `(false, false)`

, indicating an infinite line in both directions.)

`line_closest_point ?bounds ~line t`

Find the closest point to `t`

lying on the provided `line`

. `bounds`

indicates whether each end `{a; b}`

of `line`

is bounded, or a ray (default = `(false, false)`

, indicating an infinite line in both directions.)

`lower_bounds a b`

Compute the lower bounds (minima of each dimension) of the vectors `a`

and `b`

.

`upper_bounds a b`

Compute the upper bounds (maxima of each dimension) of the vectors `a`

and `b`

.

`val x : t -> float`

`val y : t -> float`

`val z : t -> float`

`val to_string : t -> string`

`left_of_line ?eps ~line t`

Return `-1.`

if `t`

is left of `line`

, `1.`

if it is to the right, and `0.`

if it falls on (within `eps`

) the `line`

. Float is returned as this is simply a clockwise check.

```
val line_intersection :
?eps:float ->
?bounds1:(bool * bool) ->
?bounds2:(bool * bool) ->
line ->
line ->
t option
```

`line_intersection ?eps ?bounds1 ?bounds2 a b`

Find the intersection (if it exists) between the lines `a`

and `b`

. `bounds1`

and `bounds2`

indicate whether the ends of `a`

and `b`

respectively are bounded or are infinite rays.

`line_normal p1 p2`

Calculates the normal (perpendicular vector) of the line between `p1`

and `p2`

.

Spatial transformations. Quaternion operations are provided when this module is included in `OCADml`

.

`rotate ?about r t`

Rotation of `t`

by `r`

(in radians) around the origin (or the point `about`

if provided).

`zrot ?about r t`

Rotation of `t`

by `r`

(in radians) around the origin (or the point `about`

if provided). Alias to `rotate`

.

`mirror ax t`

Mirrors `t`

across an axis through the origin, defined by the vector `ax`

.

`to_v3 ?z v`

Create a 3d vector from the 2d vector `v`

by adding a `z`

coordinate (default = `0.`

)

`lift p t`

Lift the 2d vector/point `t`

onto the plane `p`

. On partial application of `p`

, a `Affine3.t`

is computed to perform the lift transform. Alias to `Plane.lift`

.

`affine m t`

Apply 2d affine transformation matrix `m`

to the vector `t`

.

`affine3 m t`

Apply 3d affine transformation matrix `m`

to the vector `t`

, taking it into the 3rd dimension.

`val quaternion : ?about:V3.t -> Quaternion.t -> v2 -> V3.t`

`quaternion ?about q t`

Rotate `t`

with the quaternion `q`

around the origin (or the point `about`

if provided), taking it into the 3rd dimension.
