Projection of a Vector upon a Plane from an Arbitrary Angle, via Geometric (Clifford) Algebra

Authors: James A. Smith

We show how to calculate the projection of a vector, from an arbitrary direction, upon a given plane whose orientation is characterized by its normal vector, and by a bivector to which the plane is parallel. The resulting solutions are tested by means of an interactive GeoGebra construction.
