A simple shear could have column vectors [1, 0]^T and [3, 1]^T. 9/1/2016 109* In Example 7.4, p_4 should have z-coordinate 0, not 1 as printed, in order to result in the given solution. 10/24/2017 113* Chapter 7, Exercise 8: Problem should refer to Example 7.4 Found by: Sang Hun Son at SNU 10/24/2017 215* Appx A, Solutions to Exercises; Ch 7, Exercise 3.
