I need help with parallel projections and perspective projections, this is what I have so far:

Vertex List

v X Y Z
v X Y Z
...

and Face List

f V1 V2 V3
f V3 V2 V1
....

I have a java application that reads in a vertex list and face list. I also have code to write 2-D lines and ouput that image file. In my code I have the standard 3D default values defined for: PRP and VRP reference points, VPN and VUP vectors, and VRC window coordinates.

What I need help with is understanding the algorithms of the parallel and perspective projection. I looked up the general theory of the matrix translations of these projections; however I have no text book or guide on the topic (and am completely new to graphics). So I really do not know where/how to get started. I do not need code; I need something that would help me understand these projections and how these projections will help me take a vertex list/face list and translate that data in 2D lines. If I can understand the concepts I am pretty confident that I can code it.

Thank you for your assistance.

A coworker comes to you with the following problem:
"I provided my boss a projection of factory overhead using the high-low method. He was unhappy with the results and told me to do more work and not return until I had a lower cost estimate. My initial analysis was based on data points for the last 24 months. By dropping the

Prove algebraically that the stereographic projection of a circle (C) lying in a sphere (S) is either a circle or a straight line.
Definition:
Stereographic projection is done from the north pole of the sphere onto a plane tangent to the sphere at its south pole.
Hint:
A circle on the sphere is contained in a plane (P),

Let m and n be positive integers with n dividing m. Prove that the natural surjective ring projection Z/mZ ->Z/nZ is also surjective on the units:(Z/mZ)^x ->(Z/nZ)^x

1. Let z and z' be points in C with corresponding points on the unit sphere Z and Z' by stereographic projection. Let N be the north pole N(0,0,1).
a) Show that z and z' are diametrically opposite on the unit sphere iff z(z bar)'=-1
ps. here z bar means conjugate of z
b) Show that the triangles Nz'z and NZZ' are similar. The

A parallel RL circuit has the values, R = 5kohms and XL = 5kohms. A voltage source of Vt = 10Vrms is connected in parallel to R and L. Determine the total current, delivered by the voltage source Vt.

Please help with the following problem.
I have a project about how to perform a projected financial analysis and to include at least one flaw that can result from an incorrect projection. I'm just looking for a start, so 200-300 words will be just fine.

Let V be a circle lying in S. Then there is a unique plane P in R^3 such that p /\ S = V ( /\ = intersection). Recall from analytuc geomerty that
P = { (x_1,x_2,x_3) : x_1 b_1 + x_2 b_2 + x_3 b_3 = L, where L is a real number}.
Where ( b_1,b_2,b_3) is a vector orthogonal to P . It can be assumed that (b_1)^2 + (b_2)^2 + (b_
