Textbook: Computer Graphics, by Hearn and Baker, 2nd ed., Prentice Hall, 1994.

Prerequisite: programming experience in C or Pascal. An introduction to computer graphics. Graphics hardware, algorithms for generating and displaying two and three-dimensional geometric figures, animation, interactive displays. Programming projects will be assigned. (Each spring).

Goals:

  • survey of applications,
  • graphics hardware,
  • software standards,
  • output primitives,
  • attributes,
  • two-dimensional geometric transformations,
  • two-dimensional viewing,
  • fractal images,
  • three-dimensional geometric transformations,
  • three-dimensional viewing,
  • visible surface detection,
  • animation,
  • morphing

Computer Usage: Homework assignments and a design project require C programming.
