Computer Graphics — Principles and Practice

Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 365)


These are the short notes for a two hour tutorial on principles and practice of computer graphics and scientific visualization. They are intended to summarize the contents of the tutorial transparencies and slides but they cannot completely replace them since restrictions in space and print quality do not permit the inclusion of figures and example images. For further reference the following standard text should be consulted: [3, 8, 5, 1, 6, 2, 9]
