Description

For the current chapter, two representations and their constituent processes are of interest: reference frames and spatial templates. For projective terms, a reference frame consists of a set of three axes that assign directions onto space. Specifically, the reference frame is imposed on the reference object, and its axes extend outward defining the space beyond.
