Eric Lengyel (pronounced LENG · el, with no Y) is the founder of Terathon Software. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Davis, and a Masters Degree in Mathematics from Virginia Tech.
Eric is the creator of the following technologies:
Eric is the author of the book series Foundations of Game Engine Development, and he is the editor for the Game Engine Gems series. Over 20 years ago, he wrote the first book focused on mathematics in games, the bestselling Mathematics for 3D Game Programming & Computer Graphics. Eric has also been a longtime member of the editorial board for the Journal of Graphics Tools, and he has been a major contributor to the successful Game Programming Gems series.
Eric is an active researcher in the field of projective geometric algebra and recently authored the book Projective Geometric Algebra Illuminated. The educational resources that he has created for this subject can be found on projectivegeometricalgebra.org.
Eric previously worked in the advanced technology group at Naughty Dog and the graphics and imaging department at Apple. Before those, he was the lead programmer for the fifth installment of Sierra Studio’s popular RPG adventure series Quest for Glory. When he’s not at his desk, Eric can usually be found running somewhere in the mountains of northern California.
