The use of projective geometry in computer graphics by
I Herman(
Book
)
21 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The ultimate goal of all 3D graphics systems is to render 3D objects on a twodimensional surface such as plotter output or a workstation screen. The approach adopted by most graphics systems is to perform a central or parallel projection of the objects onto the view surface. These systems have to make use of the mathematical results of projective geometry. This monograph has as its aim the derivation of a framework for analyzing the behavior of projective transformations in graphics systems. It is shown that a mathematically precise description of the projective geometrical nature of a graphics system leads not only to a deeper understanding of the system but also to new approaches which result in faster or more precise algorithms. A further aim of the book is to show the importance of advanced mathematics for computer science. Many problems become easier to describe or to solve when the appropriate mathematical tools are used. The author demonstrates that projective geometry has a major role to play in computer graphics

PREMO : a framework for multimedia middleware : specification, rationale, and Java binding by
D. J Duke(
Book
)
13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1998, SC24, the subcommittee of ISO/IEC JTC 1 concerned with computer graphics and image processing, completed work on a new standard for multimedia presentation; the PREMO standard (PResentation Environment for Multimedia Objects) is published under the official reference ISO/IEC 14478. PREMO essentially provides a middleware specification for multimedia programming, however, more generally it also serves as a reference model for distributed multimedia."Jacket

Computer graphics and mathematics by
B Falcidieno(
Book
)
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its very existence as a separate field within computer science, computer graphics had to make extensive use of nontrivial mathematics, for example, projective geometry, solid modelling, and approximation theory. This interplay of mathematics and computer science is exciting, but also makes it difficult for students and researchers to assimilate or maintain a view of the necessary mathematics. The possibilities offered by an interdisciplinary approach are still not fully utilized. This book gives a selection of contributions to a workshop held near Genoa, Italy, in October 1991, where a group of mathematicians and computer scientists gathered to explore ways of extending the cooperation between mathematics and computer graphics

GKS theory and practice by
Peter R Bono(
Book
)
7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eurographics, the European Association for Computer Graphics, has always been an important forum for discussions and presentation of results concerning the first ISO Graphical Standard, GKS (the Graphical Kernel System) and later of its threedimensional extension, GKS3D. This book is a collection of those articles which have appeared within the framework of Eurographics in the past 5 years, and which still contain, even after several years, valid and interesting results concerning the problems arising in connection with GKS. Some of these papers help the reader to gain a deeper understanding of the standard; others deal with general implementation problems, and finally there are some presentations of specific algorithms usable also for a GKS or GKS3D implementation. The book may be of a particular interest to those specialists who intend to implement a GKS package or some similar graphics subsystem and who can therefore make direct use of the experiences reflected in this collection. The book should also be a valuable supplement in university courses concerned with teaching the principles of implementing deviceindependent computer graphics

Advances in Computer Graphics Images: Synthesis, Analysis, and Interaction by
Gerald Garcia(
)
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is a collection of the Eurographics Tutorials presented at the Eurographics '90 conference in Switzerland. Image synthesis is a traditional topic of Eurographics. But it has become clear in recent years that there is an unnaturally large distance between the two large fields of image synthesis and image analysis  the latter includes such areas as image processing, computer vision, image coding techniques, and 3D reconstruction. There is now a whole range of theoretical problems where the mixture of these two approaches is not only fruitful but also necessary. The spectacular advances in recent years in medical imaging and its applications, in scientific visualization, and in the need for sophisticated input and interaction techniques have all contributed to this development. The tutorial programme of Eurographics '90 was strongly influenced by this development and gives a unique combined perspective on the fields in one volume. The contributors are well known international experts from Europe, Japan and the USA

On the projective invariant representation of conics in computer graphics by
I Herman(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "A general formulation for conics and conic arcs for the purpose of computer graphics is given, based on principles and theorems of projective geometry. This approach allows the approximation of these curves by line segments to be postponed in the graphics output pipeline; it results in a more compact storage, faster approximation algorithms and smoother outlook of the curves."

MANIFOLD : a language for specification of interprocess communication by
F Arbab(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "Management of the communications among a set of concurrent processes arises in many applications and is a central concern in parallel computing. In this paper, we introduce a language whose sole purpose is to describe and manage complex interconnections among independent, concurrent processes. In the underlying paradigm of this language, MANIFOLD, the primary concern is not with what functionality the individual processes in a parallel system provide. Instead, the emphasis is on how these processes are interconnected and how their interaction patterns change during the execution life of the system

A dataflow graphics workstation by
P. J. W. ten Hagen(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "A new, revolutionary architecture for a superworkstation for graphical purposes is presented. The architecture is based on the use of advanced graphics components and, mainly, on the heavy use of dataflow processing technology, a still unexplored field of parallel computing as far as graphics is concerned. The resulting initial configuration is able to produce 200.000 to 250.000 Gouraud shaded and Zbuffered 3D triangles in a second with a colour palette of 24 bits per pixels."

2.5 dimensional graphics systems by
I Herman(
Book
)
5 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The outline of an extension of traditional 2D graphics system is given. This extension is aimed at supporting a three dimensional application program, without incorporating full viewing into the general graphics system itself. The resulting system might be very advantageous for large application programs which have their own three dimensional facilities."

The open inventor toolkit and the PREMO standard by
D Wang(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "PREMO is an emerging international standard for the presentations of multimedia objects including computer graphics. Open Inventor [superscript TM] is a commercially available 'de facto' standard for interactive computer graphics packaged as a library of objects. In this paper, we consider whether the concepts and objects of PREMO are sufficient to represent a professional quality system, such as Open Inventor. By comparing PREMO with Open Inventor, we hope to show that PREMO's computer graphics environment model and event model can properly describe Open Inventor's rendering action and event model. The scene graph is very important in Open Inventor. Most Open Inventor functions rely on various operations over scene graphs. The construction, edition and traversal of the scene graphs are implemented as a set of newly defined PREMO objects. Graphics rendering, event handling and scene graphs constitute the fundamental parts of Open Inventor, other Open Inventor functionalities can be constructed from these. We conclude that since these three fundamental parts of Open Inventor can be properly modelled and implemented by means of PREMO, that the concepts and objects of PREMO are sufficient to represent Open Inventor."

Modeling clip : some more results by
J Hbl(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "The modeling clip of the PHIGS ISO Standard is mathematically analysed. The most important result of this analysis is the fact that the projective image of a modeling clip body (that is a not necessarily bounded convex body in space) is simply the union of two convex bodies. Furthermore, it will also be proved that in some cases one of these two bodies is empty. This fact makes the implementation of the modeling clip fairly straightforward and makes it also possible to use all already existing results on clipping against general convex bodies without change."
