This article compares five models of 3D Euclidean geometry-not theoretically, but by demonstrating how to implement a simple recursive ray tracer in each of them. It's meant as a tangible case study of the profitability of choosing an appropriate model, discussing the trade-offs between elegance and performance for this particular application. The models we compare are 3D linear algebra, 3D geometric algebra, 4D linear algebra, 4D geometric algebra, and 5D geometric algebra.
